|Abstract:||Raman spectra of α-NaVO3 were recorded under pressures up to 170 kbar at room temperature. A crystalline-amorphous phase transition was found at ∼61 kbar, much lower than the pressures of other ionic materials. This transition is marked by the sudden appearance of very broad bands at the 800- and 350-cm-1 regions. The amorphization involves the complete breaking up of the infinite chains of corner-linked tetrahedral VO4, most likely into VO3-. On decompression, the amorphous phase transforms to another phase, probably also amorphous at ∼40 kbar. It reverts to the stable ambient-condition α phase upon heating. © 1994 The American Physical Society.|
