Data table S1
A list of observed and calculated factor moduli of Bridgmanite is available in data table S1. The observed moduli were obtained by LeBailextraction from the powder diffraction pattern shown in Fig. 2. Multiplicities of the strictly overlapping reflections are given in this table. The calculated structure factor moduli are those of the final converged structure model obtained through global optimization (35). The primary beam wavelength was 0.3344 Å and the beam was 95% linear polarized. Miller indices are for the conventional first setting of space group 62.
