Shock Synthesis and Characterization of a High-Pressure Phase of TiO2
Different TiO2 precursors were impacted by detonation-driven high velocity flyers to obtain high-pressure phases of titania under instantaneous high temperature and pressure. The factors affecting high-pressure phase synthesis such as loading conditions and titanium dioxide precursors were also studied. The structure and phase composition of the shocked samples are determined by X-ray diffraction (XRD). The microstructure of TiO2 after shock treatment was observed by transmission electron microscopy (TEM).
