Abstract

This PhD will focus on the understudied [Fe,Ni]3Si system to determine its crystal structures and thermoelastic properties at PT conditions relevant to both Mars and the Earth, using a combination of ab initio simulations and high pressure experiments. This will allow for comparison to the known seismic wave speeds of the Earth’s core and hopefully to any future seismic profile of Mars, and for future work into the [Fe,Ni]3[Si,S] system. The overall aim to produce a compositional model for the core of Mars and place it in the context of the evolution of planetary cores, including the state and structure of Mars’ core.
