Diamond anvil cells (DAC's) produced by D'ANVILS are made of three kinds of hardenned alloys:

  • Vascomax 350 (specifications.pdf ) will be the material for most of the HP applications. Operates in the cryogenic regime and up to 400 K. Pressure increase upon cooling does not exceed 1 GPa

  • Copper-Nickel alloy.(specifications.html) suitable for operation in magnetic fields. DAC and thrusting screws are made of the same alloy. Operates in the cryogenic regime and up to 400 K. Pressure increase upon cooling does not exceed 1 GPa.
  • Inconel 718 (specifications.pdf) made for high temperatures applications (900 °C). Operates in the cryogenic regime and up to 400 K. Pressure increase upon cooling does not exceed 1 GPa

They are compact, easy to operate, and relatively inexpensive. Due to their small sizes, they can be easily be fitted into standard commercial cryostats, ovens, spectrometers, magnets, etc.. Pressure is varied using small Allen screws and will optically accommodate most microscopes’ objectives focal lengths.

The DAC's kit package includes operation instructions and appropriate gadget for setting and gluing of anvils.

Two configurations are available:

  • Opposing-Plates cells intended for sub-megabar pressures.
  • Piston-Cylinder cells intended for the entire pressure range achieveable with diamond anvils.

Both configurations are suitable for spectroscopy of all kinds as well as resistance measurements and X-ray diffraction
