The temperature technique combined with pressure generation in a diamond anvil cell (DAC) provides a unique opportunity to study high pressure and high and low temperature physical and chemical properties of matter.
High and low temperature experiments at high pressures in a diamond anvil cell (DAC) are very
important to the study of materials at the extreme conditions that exist in planetary interiors or
during high-energy density processes. Such work requires accurate control over the
thermodynamic stat variables, pressure and temperature, for extended periods of time.
Resistance heating is accomplished by heating part or all of the DAC by flowing a current through a material that heats when electricity flows through it. For this a classic design is to wind NiChrome wire around the exterior of body cell.
Low temperature: The Cryostat is the way to push at low temperature the sample. A vessel room with DAC cell assembled tight to cold unit is the instrument to use. A remote control for DAC is necessary.
