Two disordered phases; Macroscopic fluid-liquid phase separation in phosphorus

Katayama, Yoshinori

By means of in-situ high-temperature and high-pressure experiment, we found two distinct structures of molten phosphorus, one is a molecular fluid and the other is a polymeric liquid, and an abrupt and reversible structural transformation between them at about 1 GPa. Further investigations revealed that the two structures have different densities and they separate macroscopically during the transformation. These results support a view that this change is an extremely rare example of a first-order phase transition between two stable disordered phases besides liquid-gas transition.
