Synthesis of clathrate cerium superhydride CeH9 at 80-100 GPa with atomic hydrogen sublattice
It is shown that CeH9 can be synthesized at 80-100 GPa with laser heating, and is characterized by a clathrate structure with a dense 3-dimensional atomic hydrogen sublattice, which shed a significant light on the search for superhydrides in close similarity with atomic hydrogen within a feasible pressure range.
Discovery of the recoverable high-pressure iron oxide Fe4O5
The discovery of an iron oxide with formula Fe4O5, synthesized at high pressure and temperature, which has strong ferrimagnetic character comparable to magnetite and is a plausible accessory mineral of the Earth’s upper mantle.
Altered chemistry of oxygen and iron under deep Earth conditions
Evidence is presented that despite the high O/Fe ratio in FeO2Hx, iron remains in the ferrous, spin-paired and non-magnetic state at 60–133 GPa, while the presence of hydrogen has minimal effects on the valence of iron.
Phase transition boundary between B1 and B8 structures of FeO up to 210 GPa
Abstract We have determined the phase transition boundary between NaCl-type (B1) and NiAs-type (B8) structures of FeO up to 208 GPa and 3800 K on the basis of synchrotron X-ray diffraction (XRD)
Unraveling the complexity of iron oxides at high pressure and temperature: Synthesis of Fe5O6
An unforeseen complexity is revealed in the Fe-O system with four different compounds—FeO, Fe5O6, Fe4O5, and h-Fe3O4—in a narrow compositional range (0.75 < Fe/O < 1.0).
Evidence for oxygenation of Fe-Mg oxides at mid-mantle conditions and the rise of deep oxygen
The new OE-phase provides strong evidence that H2O has extraordinary oxidation power at high pressure and the emergence of oxygen-excess reservoirs out of primordial or subducted (Mg, Fe)-bearing hydrous materials may revise the view on the deep-mantle redox chemistry.
Computational searches for iron oxides at high pressures.
It is found that Fe2O3 and FeO2 are the only phases stable to decomposition at 100 GPa, while at 350 and 500 GPa several stoichiometries are found to be stable or very nearly stable.
Phase relations of Fe3C and Fe7C3 up to 185 GPa and 5200 K: Implication for the stability of iron carbide in the Earth's core
We have investigated phase relations and melting behavior of Fe3C and Fe7C3 using X-ray diffraction in a laser-heated diamond cell up to 185 GPa and 5200 K. Our results show that the starting Fe3C
Oxygen in the Earth's core: a first-principles study
Abstract First-principles electronic structure calculations based on DFT have been used to study the thermodynamic, structural and transport properties of solid solutions and liquid alloys of iron
Crystallization of silicon dioxide and compositional evolution of the Earth’s core
The results demonstrate that the liquidus field of silicon dioxide (SiO2) is unexpectedly wide at the iron-rich portion of the Fe–Si–O ternary, such that an initial Fe-Si-O core crystallizes SiO2 as it cools, setting limits on silicon and oxygen concentrations in the present-day outer core.
