Steps in manipulation of a crystal for pressure cryocooling. (a) The crystal is mounted in a standard cryoloop on a steel pin and a piano wire is attached. (b) The pin with crystal is placed into a steel pressure tube. A magnet on the outside holds the pin in place. The pressure tubes are connected to the manifold and lowered into the liquid-nitrogen bath [panel (c) shows tubes and bath, with manifold removed for clarity]. (d) After pressure cooling the samples are removed from the pressure tubes under liquid nitrogen.
