A Technique for Measuring the Single Crystal Elastic Properties of High Pressure Phases
Elastic constants are among the most fundamental of physical properties. They constitute the stress-strain equation of state, are direct measures of the interatomic force systems, and for the earth, are directly comparable with in situ measurements of acoustic velocities. It is therefore important to measure these properties for high pressure polymorphs of common crustal and upper mantle minerals.
