Dynamic compression experiments of SiO2 and GeO2 at synchrotron- and X-ray free electron laser (XFEL) light sources

Universität Rostock, 2020

Abstract: In this work, the high pressure behavior of four major SiO2 polymorphs were investigated by means of dynamic compression: α-quartz, fused silica, stishovite and α-cristobalite. Here, laser shock compression and dynamic diamond anvil cell (dDAC) techniques were applied and the concomitant use of hard X-ray radiation at synchrotron- and X-ray free electron laser (XFEL) facilities made a time-resolved investigation of the lattice response at high pressures possible.
