Abstract [en]

It is well established that at a pressure of several megabars and low temperature Fe is stable in the hexagonal-close-packed (hcp) phase. However, there are indications that on heating a high-pressure hcp phase of Fe transforms to a less dense (open structure) phase. Two phases have been suggested as candidates for these high-temperature stable phases: namely, body-centered-cubic and body-centered-tetragonal (bct) phases. We performed first-principles molecular dynamics and phonon analysis of the bct Fe phase and demonstrated its dynamical instability. This allows us to dismiss the existence of the bct Fe phase under the high-pressure high-temperature conditions of the Earth's inner core.
