Abstract
X-ray absorption measurements at the L3 edge of Hg in solid and liquid HgTe have been performed under high-temperature and high-pressure up to 1000 K and 3 GPa using a large volume Paris-Edinburgh press. EXAFS spectra have been analyzed with GNXAS approach. The pressure dependencies of the nearest neighbor distance and the bond variance at room temperature as well as their variation with temperature at 0.6 GPa have been obtained. The temperature dependence of the bond variance has been fitted to the Einstein model and is consistent to the decrease of the bulk modulus with increasing temperature, which has recently been shown to occur by an x-ray diffraction study.
