Symmetric Cells for Double Sided Laser Heating

Over 40 symmetric cells are capable of generating pressure to 200 GPa routinely. Experiments are conducted at synchrotron facilities at APS and ESRF.


Externally Heated DACs

Uniform, stable temperature is achieved by using small wire heater around the diamond or large heater around the cylinder. Ceramic seats are also used for efficient heat. Simultaneous pressure and temperature up to 120 GPa and 1100 K can be routinely achieved.


Internally Heated DACs

Metallic sample such as iron used as heater and sample in the internally heated DAC, that is capable of generate stable temperatures up to 100 GPa and 2000 K.
