Figure 3
Photograph of a sample of KClO3 confined in a diamond anvil cell (looking through one of the diamonds). The yellow spots are caused by molecular oxygen released when the X-ray beam hit that particular region of the sample and vary in degree of intensity as they each represent a different pressure and the decay rates vary with pressure (see Fig. 2[link]). The diagonal yellow line going from quadrant II to quadrant IV was repeatedly used for finding the sample during the standard alignment procedure performed after each change in pressure.
