Abstract:

The present work presents the results obtained from studying changes in the crystalline structure of niobium pentoxide after being loaded by a shock wave up to pressures above 1.5 Mbar. Shock compression was achieved primarily by the method of preserving cylindrical ampoules loaded by a sliding detonation of explosive charges.
