A NEW LOOK AT THE ATOMIC VOLUMES OF THE B-FORM OF THE TRANSPLUTONIUM METALS
The atomic volumes of the beta form of the first four transplutonium metals were evaluated using data for samples prepared by thermal and by pressure treatment. The volumes derived for curium, berkelium, and californium metals quenched from elevated temperatures were found to be consistently larger than those for "pressure quenched" samples, whose volumes were in good agreement with values for the alpha forms. The cubic lattice parameters from "pressure quenched" samples also provided a more consistent trend than those obtained from thermally quenched samples when compared to the parameters for the corresponding mononitrides of the metals.
