he sequence of phase transition in ZrO
has attracted a special attention in the field of crystal chemistry,
earth science and materials science. The lack of an adequate behavior of rutile type SiO
theoretical and experimental studies to understand the phase transition and amorphisation under ambient and extreme conditions
like high pressure. This rutile type phase undergoes structural phase transition under high pressure to the CaCl
Of particular interest for accurate prediction are where and whether phase transition occur, since these give rise to density
discontinuities, which can account for known seismic effects or even after the convention patterns in the mantle. In the present
study, we present the first principles study on lattice dynamics, Raman modes and phonon dispersion curves with high pressure
in ferroelastic Rutile to CaCl
phase. The phase transition pressure from rutile to CaCl
structure obtained in
the present study is in excellent agreement with experimental Raman, X-ray and Brillouin scattering data. The softening of the
Raman active B1
phonon mode, which is responsible for the structural phase transition, is demonstrated.
