Spin transition of iron in magnesiowüstite in the Earth's lower mantle
Iron is the most abundant transition-metal element in the mantle and therefore plays an important role in the geochemistry and geodynamics of the Earth's interior. Pressure-induced electronic spinExpand

Spin state of ferric iron in MgSiO3 perovskite and its effect on elastic properties
Abstract Recent studies have indicated that a significant amount of iron in MgSiO 3 perovskite (Pv) is Fe 3+ (Fe 3+ /ΣFe = 10–60%) due to crystal chemistry effects at high pressure ( P ) and that FeExpand

Rietveld structure refinement of perovskite and post-perovskite phases of NaMgF3 (Neighborite) at high pressures
Abstract Neighborite (NaMgF3) with the perovskite structure, transforms to a post-perovskite (ppv) phase between 27 and 30 GPa. The ppv phase is observed to the highest pressures achieved (56 GPa) atExpand

Sb2O4 at high pressures and high temperatures
Investigations on Sb{sub 2}O{sub 4} at high pressure and temperature have been performed up to 600{sup o}C and up to 27.3GPa. The so-called 'high temperature' phase ({beta}-Sb{sub 2}O{sub 4}) wasExpand

Dissociation of CH4 at high pressures and temperatures: diamond formation in giant planet interiors?
Experiments using laser-heated diamond anvil cells show that methane (CH4) breaks down to form diamond at pressures between 10 and 50 gigapascals and temperatures of about 2000 to 3000 kelvin.Expand
