Figure 12
High-pressure setup using diamond anvil cells (DACs) to submit samples to extreme conditions. The focused X-ray beam goes through the two diamond cells that are loaded against each other through a gasket to create a closed environment with pressures reaching several tens to hundreds of GPa. A pressure medium is used to distribute the pressure and a ruby sphere is used as a pressure gauge via an optical signal. Culet sizes are typically of the order of a few hundred micrometres.
