Name: Ming CHEN (陈鸣)
Position: Research Professor
Department: State Key Laboratory of Isotope Geochemistry


My research fields cover cosmomineralogy, high-pressure mineralogy and shock metamorphism through an investigation of samples from meteorites and terrestrial impact craters, using the methods including Raman spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction structural analysis, TEM, SEM, EPMA and optical microscope et al. Current projects include shock metamorphic features of rocks and minerals from L-chondrites, H-chondrites, and the Xiuyan impact crater, shock-induced high-pressure phase transitions of opaque minerals and silicates, and pressure and temperature history of shocked rocks.
