Physics and Chemistry of Minerals is an international journal devoted to publishing articles and short communications of physical or chemical studies on minerals or solids related to minerals. The aim of the journal is to support competent interdisciplinary work in mineralogy and physics or chemistry. Particular emphasis is placed on applications of modern techniques or new theories and models to interpret atomic structures and physical or chemical properties of minerals. Some subjects of interest are: Relationships between atomic structure and crystalline state (structures of various states crystal energies crystal growth thermodynamic studies phase transformations solid solution exsolution phenomena etc.) General solid state spectroscopy (ultraviolet visible infrared Raman ESCA luminescence X-ray electron paramagnetic resonance nuclear magnetic resonance gamma ray resonance etc.) Experimental and theoretical analysis of chemical bonding in minerals (application of crystal field molecular orbital band theories etc.) Physical properties (magnetic mechanical electric optical thermodynamic etc.) Relations between thermal expansion compressibility elastic constants and fundamental properties of atomic structure particularly as applied to geophysical problems Electron microscopy in support of physical and chemical studies Computational methods in the study of the structure and properties of minerals Mineral surfaces (experimental methods structure and properties).
