TABLE : Group on Shock Compression of Condensed Matter (GSCCM)
|1||Exoplanets: from Discovery to Characterization and Beyond||Seager, Sara||Exoplanets: from Discovery to Characterization and Beyond||Session 1: Materials at TPa: a New Frontier of Materials Physics|
|2||Phase transitions in mantle silicates and the internal structure of terrestrial exoplanets||Umemoto, Koichiro||In this talk I will review the sequence of phase transitions we discovered in pure MgSiO 3 up to 4 TPa, as well as in aggregates of MgSiO 3+MgO and MgSiO 3+SiO 2 with variable Mg/Si abundances.||Session 1: Materials at TPa: a New Frontier of Materials Physics|
|3||Mass-dependent Dynamics of Terrestrial Exoplanets Using ab initio Mineral Properties||Van den Berg, Arie; Yuen, David; Umemoto, Koichiro; Jacobs, Michael; Wentzcovitch, Renata||We present new modelling results for the internal structure and convective dynamics of large terrestrial (rocky) exoplanets.||Session 1: Materials at TPa: a New Frontier of Materials Physics|
|4||Phase Transitions Beyond Post-Perovskite in Neighborite (NaMgF3) to 1.6 Mbars||Duffy, Thomas; Dutta, Rajkrishna; Greenberg, Eran; Prakapenka, Vitali||In this work, we have studied the high-pressure behavior of NaMgF 3 to 1.6 Mbars using the laser-heated diamond anvil cell technique coupled with synchrotron x-ray diffraction.||Session 1: Materials at TPa: a New Frontier of Materials Physics|
