Abstract

The 37K phase transition of α-U single crystal was observed by a calorimetric technique to be suppressed by the application of hydrostatic compression. The rate of decrease of the transition temperature T2 with pressure P is dT2/dP = -(3.6±0.2)K/kbar. Our results qualitatively support the phase diagram of α-U single crystal proposed by Smith.
