NaCl, pressure gauge, lattice parameter, lattice temperature
The pressure as a function of lattice parameter and temperature has been calculated for NaCl over a pressure range of 0 to 500 kbar for temperatures between 0degrees and 1500degrees C. The calculation used the Mie-Gruneisen equation of state with Born-Mayer type repulsion terms between first and second nearest neighbors. The Gruneisen constant was expanded about its value at room temperature and atmospheric pressure; the first coefficient in the expansion being evaluated by forcing the calculated thermal expansion at atmospheric pressure to fit the experimental results of Enck. The two empirical parameters in the repulsion terms were evaluated using the experimental lattice parameter and isothermal compressibility at atmospheric pressure. The calculated pressure vs volume agrees with Bridgman's room-temperature measurements in NaCl below 100 kbar to within 3% and with high-pressure high-temperature shock data to better than 2%. It is proposed to use the numerical results to calibrate the pressure in high-pressure high-temperature apparatus
