..However, below the critical 5f-electron number this mechanism is not favorable due to a lack of sufficient 5f-state occupancy and thus the system undergoes a B1-B2 phase transition like other ionic solids. ..

..This study is also expected to play an important role in our understanding of the pressure induced metallization of geophysically relevant oxides such as SiO2 and TiO2. ..
