Shenzhen Xu and Dane Morgan hope understand deep Earth in recent PNAS paper

“This paper reports an unexpected change in the oxidation state of Fe in bridgmanite, the most dominant mineral in the lower mantle. The oxidation state change resolves the discrepancy between laboratory and seismic studies on the chemical composition of the lower mantle, showing that the lower mantle has major element chemistry similar to the upper […]


Prof. Morgan contributes to newly released NSF/TMS study “Materials Data Infrastructure”

“The availability of increasingly sophisticated experimental and computational tools provides scientists and engineers with new opportunities, but harnessing the vast amounts of data generated from these new approaches presents a challenge. Building a Materials Data Infrastructure identifies and prioritizes these challenges, while also providing actionable recommendations for addressing them.” Click this link to learn more about this […]
