# Thermal Equation of State of (Mg0.9Fe0.1)2SiO4 Olivine

## Abstract

In situ synchrotron X-ray diffraction measurements have been carried out on San Carlos olivine (Mg{sub 0.9}Fe{sub 0.1}){sub 2}SiO{sub 4} up to 8 GPa and 1073 K. Data analysis using the high-temperature Birch-Murnaghan (HTBM) equation of state (EoS) yields the temperature derivative of the bulk modulus ({partial_derivative}K{sub T}/{partial_derivative}T){sub P} = -0.019 {+-} 0.002 GPa K-1. The thermal pressure (TH) approach gives {alpha}K{sub T} = 4.08 {+-} 0.10 x 10{sup -3} GPa K{sup -1}, from which ({partial_derivative}K{sub T}/{partial_derivative}T){sub P} = -0.019 {+-} 0.001 GPa K-1 is derived. Fitting the present data to the Mie-Gr{umlt u}neisen-Debye (MGD) formalism, the Gr{umlt u}neisen parameter at ambient conditions {gamma}{sub 0} is constrained to be 1.14 {+-} 0.02 with fixed volume dependence q = 1. Combining the present data with previous results on iron-bearing olivine and fitting to MGD EoS, we obtain {gamma}{sub 0} = 1.11 {+-} 0.01 and q = 0.54 {+-} 0.36. In this study the thermoelastic parameters obtained from various approaches are in good agreement with one another and previous results.
