Nanoscale simulation of crystal defects with application to mantle minerals

Skelton, Richard


Minor and trace elements can influence the chemical and physical properties of the Earth's mantle, whether by forming separate minerals that can host trace elements at far higher concentrations than major mantle minerals, or by influencing physical properties of major minerals, for instance by enhancing diffusion or pinning topological defects. The present study uses atomistic computational modeling to investigate the properties of calcium phosphate minerals...[Show more]
