Abstract

The recent decade has seen dramatic progress in determining the sound wave velocities under extremely high pressures. This advancement enables us to successfully determine the shear wave velocities of constituent mineral phases in the Earth's mantle and the glass materials in situ under high pressures. Here, the recent advances in high pressure elastic wave velocity measurements using Brillouin scattering spectroscopy were reviewed. The continued development of the high-pressure Brillouin scattering spectroscopy promises major advances in exploring the mineralogical model of the Earth's interior, and the high-pressure material science.
