High pressure behaviour of TmTe and EuO
The high pressure behaviour of TmTe and of EuO have been investigated up to pressures of 49 and GPa and 63 GPa, respectively, using the energy dispersive x-ray diffraction technique and synchrotron radiation. TmTe shows a phase transformation at 8 GPa to a possible tetragonal structure. Above 35 GPa this structure undergoes a further distortion. EuO shows a normal compressibility curve leading up to an NaCl to CsC1 type phase transition beginning at 47 GPa.
