Valence and spin states of iron are invisible in Earth’s lower mantle

Our new article, “Valence and spin states of iron are invisible in Earth’s lower mantle,” is now published in Nature Communications! The project, led by postdoc Jiachao Liu, answers the question, “can we use geophysical measurements to map the composition of Earth’s mantle?” This is the first publication to come out of work initiated with MSU funding, and also our first in a Nature-family journal!
