Abstract: In this work, the phase behavior of binary systems comprising nitrogen and a noble element (nitrogen + argon and nitrogen + krypton) was studied at high density in the condensed state. Following the work of Lotz et al.[2001], the main goal of this work was to further investigate the pressure-concentration phase diagram as well as to look for the possible formation of van der Waals compounds at elevated pressures and room temperature and study their physical properties, using both vibrational spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction. The observed phases, formed by single atoms and/or simple molecules in the binary systems were solved and modeled for their corresponding crystalline structures. From experimental results, lattice parameters for all crystalline structures and phase transitions, if detected, have been observed to shift with respect to that of the pure substances. The analyses and characterization of these binary systems are discussed in detail.
