摘要
High-pressure experiments usually expect a hydrostatic condition, in which the physical properties of materials can be easily understood by theoretical simulations. Unfortunately, non-hydrostatic effect is inevitable in experiments due to the solidification of the pressure transmitting media under high pressure. Resultantly, non-hydrostaticity affects the accuracy of the experimental data and sometimes even leads to false phenomena. Since the non-hydrostatic effect is extrinsic, it is quite hard to analyze quantitatively. Here, we have conducted high pressure experiments on the layered BiCuXO (X = S and Se) single crystals and quantitatively analyzed their pronounced non-hydrostatic effect by high throughput first-principles calculations and experimental Raman spectra. Our experiments find that the BiCuXO single crystals sustain the tetragonal structure up to 55 GPa (maximum pressure in our experiment). However, their pressure-dependent Raman shift and electric resistance show anomalous behaviors. Through optimization of thousands of crystal structures in the high throughput first-principles calculations, we have obtained the evolution of the lattice constants under external pressures, which clearly substantiates the non-hydrostatical pressure exerted in BiCuXO crystals. Our work indicates that the high throughput first-principles calculations could be a handy method to investigate the non-hydrostatic effect on the structural and electronic properties of materials in high pressure experiments.
