Diffusion in minerals

 

Plastic deformation of minerals

  • Diffusion creep

  • Dislocation creep

Single crystal growth of mantle minerals

  • Synthesized ringwoodite single crystals

    Hydrous iron-bearing ringwooditte

    Nominally anhydrous iron-bearing ringwoodite

    Nominally anhydrous iron-free ringwoodite

  • Synthesized wadsleyite single crystals

    Hydrous iron-free wadsleyite

    Anhydrous iron-free wadsleyite
