Abstract

Pressure and temperature dependence of the electrical resistivity of amorphous Ga20Te80 alloy is reported for the first time. The alloy undergoes a pressure induced amorphous semiconductor-to-crystalline metal phase transition at 6.5 ± 0.5 GPa. The high pressure crystalline phase is a mixture of Te and GaTe3 phases.
