The Thermal Conductivity and Expansion Enhancement Associated with Formation of the Superionic State in SrCl2
A second-order phase transition in SrCl2 near 1000 K produces superionic conduction and is often called the Bredig transition. This anion disordering occurs in other technologically important materials, such as U02, but at very high temperatures where measurements are difficult. Property studies on SrC12 at low temperatures may aid future high temperature studies.
