research outline

Global seismology and high-pressure experiments comprise the most important tools for the study of the Erth's deep interior. My research interest is to yield basic experimental data combining both of these tools. Presently I am conducting the following:

(1) Resonant ultrasound spectrophy for measuring the elasticity of mantle minerals, such as b and g spinels and perovskite.

(2) Pulse transmition technique for measuring the acoustic velocity of mantle minerals under high pressure.

(3) Stress analysis in a high-pressure cell and in anvils in order to improve the quality of high-pressure experiments.
