Atomistic simulation of trace element incorporation into garnets - comparison with experimental garnet-melt partitioning data

Abstract:

We have studied the energetics of trace element incorporation into pure almandine (Alm), grossular (Gros), pyrope (Py) and spessartine (Spes) garnets (X3Al2Si3O12, with X = Fe, Ca, Mg, Mn respectively), by means of computer simulations of perfect and defective lattices in the static limit. The simulations use a consistent set of interatomic potentials to describe the non-Coulombic interactions between the ions, and take explicit account of lattice relaxation associated with trace element inco...
