Internal resistance heating experiments were conducted in a diamond-anvil apparatus to determine the γ-ε-iron transition. Accurate values of the transition temperature at high pressure were obtained with a diode-array spectrometer, which was used to measure the blackbody emission of the heated iron sample at high pressure. The transition curve was observed in the range 190–360 kbar, 800–1375°C. The slope of the transition was 3.5°C/kbar. The γ-ε transition curve, if extrapolated, would project an iron field stability under conditions of the earth's Core.
