7 Spin State of Fe in the Lower Mantle: Ferropericlase X-ray emission spectra, Mg 0.83 Fe 0.17 O P = 0 GPa  high spin P = 75 GPa  low spin Badro, et al., Science ‘03

9 Spin State vs. Temperature: (Mg 0.75,Fe 0.25 )O Lin, et al., Science TBP

10 High vs. Low Spin - Does it Matter? YES!  Density: R HS = 0.78Å, R LS = 0.61Å (~25% change!) (Shannon, Acta Cryst. A ’76)  Composition: changes in spin could dramatically change Fe partitioning  Phase stability: spin transitions could couple to phase stability  Thermal transport: Optical absorption change  change in radiative heat transfer properties  Thermoelasticity: Elastic constants could be very different – unknown at present  Kinetics, …

11 Fe spin in the Lower Mantle: Questions  How does spin state depend on −Pressure −Temperature −Composition −Local chemical order (Mg vs. Fe, Al neighbors) −Structure (rocksalt, iB8, perovskite, post-perovskite) −Fe valence (2+ vs. 3+) −Fe site occupancy (A, B site in perovskite)  How does the spin state impact −Fe partitioning −Lower mantle phase stability −Thermophysical properties (density, mechanical properties, heat transport, etc.)

12 First-Principles Modeling: Opportunities and Challenges

13 Composition and Structure (e.g., Mg 0.75 Fe 0.25 O) Energies: Stability, Atomic Positions, … Electronic Structure: Spin state, Bands, … Additional modeling for T>0, optical properties, … Quantum mechanics (+ approximations) First-Principles Calculations

19 Challenges for First-Principles and Spin Effects Why so much spread in calculation?

20 Challenges for First-Principles and Spin Effects  Accuracy of calculation parameters −Exchange-correlation type: LDA/GGA −Exchange-correlation parametrization: PW, PBE, … −Correlated electron corrections: LDA/GGA+U −Pseudopotentials: All electron, Ultrasoft, PAW, …  Correct materials system parameters −Composition: global and local chemical order −Valence −Site occupancy −Temperature −Structural relaxation −Magnetism

PRL ’97) Fe local order Valence effect Al local order Fe 3+ + Al Sensitivity to valence/configurations – need to compare like configurations

26 First-Principles study of Fe Spin Crossover

27 Our Questions  What is the composition dependence of the spin crossover?  What drives the crossover – electronic vs. volume changes?  What differences might exist between ferropericlase (rocksalt) and perovskite structures?

28 Ferropericlase (Rocksalt)  (Mg,Fe)O Rocksalt structure  Fe octahedrally coordinated  Mg-Fe pseudobinary alloy on metal FCC sublattice  Generally assumed to be single disordered phase under lower mantle conditions

29 Ferropericlase  Strong composition -spin crossover coupling  What drives the crossover?  What drives composition effect? Persson, et al., GRL ‘06

30 Ferropericlase: What Drives the Crossover?  E does not go to zero!  P  V term is the most important driver of the transition!  Both  E, P  V terms drive up crossover pressure with Fe content  Effect of chemical pressure? P∆V ∆E Spin crossover (T=0) when  H = E HS -E LS + P(V HS -V LS ) = 0

31 Understanding P T vs. C Fe Trend Chemical Pressure  P T ▲Volume (P=100GPa) HS LS  Mg compresses Fe-HS  HS less stable  P T ↓  Mg does not expand Fe-LS  LS unaffected  P T ↔  Increasing Mg pushes P T ↓ P=0: R(Fe-HS)>R(Mg)≈R(Fe-LS)

32 Perovskite  (Mg,Fe)(Si)O 3 perovskite structure  Fe in pseudocubic environment  Mg-Fe pseudobinary alloy on metal cubic sublattice  Generally assumed to be single disordered phase under lower mantle conditions for low Fe content, unstable for high Fe content

33 Perovskite Bengtson, et al., EPSL, submitted ‘07  Strong composition -spin crossover coupling, opposite ferropericlase!  What drives the crossover?  What drives composition effect?

34 Perovskite: What Drives the Crossover? P∆V ∆E  P  V still very important in transition  E terms drive down crossover pressure with Fe content  Changes in  E due to structural relaxations (crossover pressure = ~900 GPa w/o relaxation!)

35 Crossover Pressure vs. Fe Composition Strong Structural Coupling  Transitions driven significantly by P  V terms  Opposite trends due to structural relaxation in perovskite Ferropericlase Perovskite

36 Conclusions  Wide range of spin crossover values possible with different calculation and system choices.  Spin crossover trends with composition are opposite in ferropericlase and perovskite.  Volume contraction (P  V) makes a major contribution to the spin crossover energetics.

39 Ferropericlase (Rocksalt)  (Mg,Fe)O Rocksalt structure  Fe octahedrally coordinated  Mg-Fe pseudobinary alloy on metal FCC sublattice  Phase stability: High T,P experiments ambiguous: −Mg 0.5 Fe 0.5 O, Mg 0.6 Fe 0.4 O, Mg 0.8 Fe 0.2 O: Phase separation (Dubrovinsky, et al., '00,'01,’05) −Mg 0.6 Fe 0.4 O: No separation (Vissiliou and Ahrens, Geophys. Res. Lett. ’82) −Mg 0.25 Fe 0.75 O, Mg 0.39 Fe 0.61 O: No separation (Lin, et al., PNAS '03) −Often assumed to be single disordered phase under lower mantle conditions for most compositions

40 A Multiscale Alloy Theory Approach

41 Multiscale Alloy Theory Approach First-Principles Energetics Thermodynamic Modeling Phase stability, Fe partitioning, Fe spin states, Densities, … CALPHAD

42 Multiscale Alloy Theory Approach - What is Needed?  Identifying key interactions (T=0, P>0) −Spin state vs. structure (rocksalt vs. perovskite) −Spin state vs. Fe composition −Fe – Mg interaction vs. spin state −Fe spin state vs. valence (Fe 2+ vs. Fe 3+ )  Thermodynamic models (T>0)  Phase stability studies + integration with experimental data

43 Fe – Mg Interaction vs. Spin State: Perovskite Fe(low spin)-Mg alloy could be below miscibility gap in lower mantle  Possible Fe solubility constraints, even for c Fe /(c Mg +c Fe ) ~ 0.1  Possibly strong clustering short-range-order T c (100GPa)≈900KT c (100GPa)≈4500K Low SpinHigh Spin

48 Fitting The Free Energy  Fitting grid for B1 (NaCl) −Mixed spin data uncertain so assume no Fe-HS – Fe- LS interaction  Fitting grid for iB8 (i-NiAs) −Ab initio  almost no LS −Ab initio  almost no Mg solubility  Easy to fit! MgO FeO-HS FeO-LS MgO FeO-HS FeO-LS
