Topic:

High Pressure-Temperature Study in Earth Science


Research Interests / Research Profile:

The interior of the Earth is under extremely high pressure and high temperature conditions. In the last few decades, the development of diamond anvil cells (DACs) together with optical spectroscopy and/or synchrotron-based techniques have made groundbreaking progress in studying the Earth’s deep interior. My research focuses on exploring the physical properties of materials, including crystal structures, elasticity, phase relations, and deformation behavior, in the Earth’s interior using DACs combined with other techniques. In this talk, I will discuss our recent high pressure-temperature experiment results about the elasticity of minerals, the spin transition of Fe-bearing minerals, and the sound velocity of Fe-alloys at high pressure-temperature conditions. These experiment results not only have great geophysical implications but may be of great interest to the material scientists.
