X-RAY DIFFRACTION STUDY OF CALIFORNIUM METAL TO 16 GPA
The first series of measurements to determine the structural behavior of californium metal under pressure is reported. The initial double hexagonal close packed (d.h.c.p.) structure transformed sluggishly with increasing pressure to an f.c.c. structure. A bulk modulus of 50 +- 5 GPa was derived for d.h.c.p. californium metal from the data for the relative volumes V/V-o at pressures up to 10 GPa.
