Abstract

Anatase TiO2 was severely deformed using high-pressure torsion and the effect of plastic strain and grain size on phase transformations was investigated. A high-pressure TiO2-II phase (columbite) with the orthorhombic structure was formed under pressures of 1 and 6 GPa. Fraction of TiO2-II increased with increasing the plastic strain and remained stable at ambient pressure. Microstructural analysis showed that TiO2-II was stabilized in grains with sizes less than ~ 15 nm because of high energy barrier for reverse phase transformation, while larger grains had the anatase structure. Large densities of oxygen vacancies and dislocations were also formed after severe plastic deformation.
