Abstract

X-ray diffraction data obtained under nonhydrostatic compression of a polycrystalline sample yield13; an estimate of the single-crystal elasticity tensor of the material when analyzed using appropriate13; equations. The analysis requires as input the aggregate shear modulus from independent measurements.13; The high-pressure elastic moduli of face-centered-cubic FeO, body-centered-cubic iron (a-Fe), and the13; pressure-induced hexagonal close-packed iron (e-Fe) are obtained. This analysis currently provides13; the only method of determining single-crystal elasticity tensors in the megabar pressure range and of13; studying elasticity of very high-pressure phases.
