AbstractWereport on x-ray absorption near-edge structure (XANES) and extended x-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) measurements of SmNiO from 20 K to 600 K and up to 38 GPa at the Ni K and SmL edges. A multiple component pre-NiKedge tail is understood, originating from 1 s transitions to 3d-4p states while a post-edge shoulder increases distinctively smoothly, at about the insulator to metal phase transition (T), due to the reduction of electron-phonon interactions as the Ni 3d and O 2p b and overlap triggers the metallic phase. This effect is concomitant with pressure-induced Ni-O-Ni angle increments toward more symmetric Ni octahedra of the rhombohedral R3c space group. Room temperature pressure-dependent Ni white line peak energies have an abrupt∼3.10 ± 0.04 GPa valence discontinuity from non-equivalent Ni + Ni charge disproportionate net unresolved absorber turning at ∼T into Ni of the orthorhombic Pbnm metal oxide phase. At 20 Kthe overall white line response, still distinctive at T∼8.1 ± 0.6 GPa is much smoother due to localization. Octahedral bond contraction up to 38 GPa and at 300 K and 20 K show breaks in its monotonic increase at the different structural changes. The SmL edge does not show distinctive behaviors either at 300 K or 20 K up to about 35 GPa but the perovskite Smcage, coordinated to eight oxygen atoms, undergoes strong uneven bond contractions at intermediate pressures where we found the coexistence of octahedral and rhombohedral superexchange angle distortions.Wefound that the white line pressure-dependent anomaly may be used as an accurate alternative for delineating pressure-temperature phase diagrams.
