Advances in customized diamond anvils

Chapter

Abstract

  • The current state of static high pressure science owes much to the remarkable physical and mechanical properties of diamond, particularly its extremely high compressive strength and its transparency to a wide range of optical and xray wavelengths. While a large number of different diamond anvil cell designs have been developed over the years for different experimental needs, the key components of these cells, the diamond anvils themselves, have changed very little for most experimental work. With the increasing availability of advanced technological tools that can be applied to diamond, more and more efforts are being directed towards customizing diamond anvils for various high pressure experiments, with the aim of improving experimental sensitivity and accuracy, increasing the experimental pressure range, as well as improving the ease of experimental setup.
