Title High pressure, low temperature structural studies of orientationally ordered C60
Contributors
Abstract The low temperature orientationally ordered structure of C60 consists of rapid reorientation between two structurally distinct configurations. At ambient pressure, the lower-energy orientation, described by pentagons facing (110) bonding directions. has a larger volume than the second orientation, described by hexagons facing (110). In this paper, it is shown that application of a modest pressure of around 2 kbar is sufficient to make the 'hexagon orientation' the more energetically favourable. indicating that the structural ground state of C60 is highly pressure dependent.
