Abstract

High‐pressure phases of CaCO3, namely aragonite, calcite II, and possibly calcite III, were synthesized in air by exposing 10‐ to 20‐μm‐size particles of CaCO3 (calcite I phase) to a CO2 laser radiation at short pulse lengths (≤0.1 ms). The process, therefore, has the same effect as exposing the particles to at least several hundred megapascals pressure. Processing at higher pulse lengths resulted in the decomposition of CaCO3 to CaO and CO2. The extent of decomposition increased with increasing pulse length.
