Short summary
We examined the experimental deformation and phase transition of a bridgmanite analogue, NaCoF3, using a resistive-heated diamond anvil cell and a synchrotron radiation source. We wanted to observe the behavior of NaCoF3 under uniaxial compression and its plastic properties, as well as to determine if it is a suitable analogue for natural samples. We observe 100 and 001 compression textures and link those to the dominant deformation mechanism in the perovskite structure.
