Title
Melting curve T_m(p) of sodium under pressure p : transition from a Wigner-like nuclear bcc structure near 30 GPa to lower symmetry states with negative dT_m/d p at higher pressures
Author
Abstract
It is known experimentally that the melting temperature T-m(p) of Na as a function of pressure p increases with p out to similar to 20GPa and then passes through a maximum. Here, we interpret the behavior as passing from classical Wigner-like bcc nuclear structure at low pressures to a structure out to about 60GPa where the melting is mediated by topological defects.
