Abstract

The pyrochlore-type MgZrSi2O7 has been investigated by in situ synchrotron energy-dispersive X-ray diffraction measurements up 24.3 GPa at room temperature in a multianvil high pressure apparatus. The pressure has been calculated using an internal gold metal pressure calibrant. No phase transformation was observed in this study. A third-order Birch-Murnaghan equation of state was used to fit the pressure-volume data. The fitting gives a volume of V0 = 802.8 ± 0.2 Å3, an isothermal bulk modulus of KT = 249 ± 12 GPa, and first pressure derivative of KT = 3.2 ± 1.3. If K T is fixed as 4, KT is obtained as 241.8 ± 2.6 GPa. Compared with zirconate or titanate pyrochlores, MgZrSi 2O7 shows a smaller compressibility due to a larger cation radii ratio (r Mg, Zr/r Si).
