Physical properties of molten iron alloys at high pressures

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


In order to understand the formation, evolution and dynamic processes of the molten core of the terrestrial planets, knowledge of the physical properties, such as viscosity and density, of the molten iron alloy is required. Recent progress in the high-pressure technology combined with synchrotron radiation allows us to measure such properties at high-temperature and high-pressure. In this article, recent advances in the high-pressure research of molten iron alloys are reviewed.
