BULK MODULUS AND PRESSURE - VOLUME RELATIONSHIP UP TO 52 GPA OF NEPTUNIUM METAL AT ROOM TEMPERATURE
High purity neptunium metal was studied under high pressure using a diamond anvil cell in an energy dispersive X-ray facility. No phase transition was observed up to 52 GPa. A bulk modulus B-o=118 GPa and its pressure derivative B'-o=6.6 were calculated by fitting the V(P) data to the Birch and Murnaghan equations. The results are discussed in the context of recent compressibility measurements of other actinides.
