High Pressure Mineral Physics Study at SPring-8

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper describes the high pressure mineral physics research at SPring-8, the new third -generation synchrotron radiation facility in Hyogo, Japan. SPring-8 has four experimental stations with several pressure apparatuses for high pressure research. These facilities are open to independent researchers, and various kinds of high pressure experiments are currently being conducted and planned to reveal the physical and chemical properties of the Earth and the planetary interiors.
