STUDY OF PHASE TRANSITIONS IN CERIUM BY PVDF GAUGE
- Conference date: 24–29 June 2007
- Location: Waikoloa (Hawaii)
This paper examines phase transitions in cerium during shock compression using PVDF gauges. A two‐wave structure was observed with loading pressures of The wave structure consists of a leading isentropic compression wave followed by a shock wave. This wave structure was formed in cerium as a result of the isomorphic (γ‐α) phase transition. The wave profiles exhibited no peculiarities resulting from the polymorphic transition (α‐ε) in the aforementioned pressure range.
