The phase diagram and polymorphism of oxygen at high pressures and temperatures are of great interest to condensed matter and earth science. X-ray diffraction and Raman spectroscopy of oxygen using laser and resistively heated diamond anvil cells reveal that the molecular high-pressure phase ɛ-O(2), which consists of (O(2))(4) clusters, reversibly transforms in the pressure range of 44 to 90 GPa and temperatures near 1000 K to a new phase with higher symmetry. The data suggest that this new phase (η(')) is isostructural to a phase η reported previously at lower pressures and temperatures, but differs from it in the P-T range of stability and type of intermolecular association. The melting curve increases monotonically up to the maximum pressures studied (∼60 GPa). The structure factor of the fluid measured as a function of pressure to 58 GPa shows continuous changes toward molecular dissociation.
