Instruments

For over 30 years, Almax easyLab has been designing diamond anvil cells (DACs) for a wide range of measurements (Optical, X-ray, Magnetic of Electrical transport).

Our extensive selection offers the perfect solution for your experiment, regardless of whether you need a cryogenic, room temperature, or high temperature diamond anvil cell.

The very extensive choice below will provide an overview of the various product families, their features, and help you make the best selection for your requirements.

When choosing your DAC, you must consider parameters such as:

  • temperature range (low, room, or high temperature);
  • pressurization mechanism (screw, gas, or hydraulic);
  • maximum pressure range (100 GPa or more);
  • optical aperture (2 theta conical aperture);
  • dimensional constraints (working distance, numerical aperture);
  • type of diamond anvils (Ia, RLF-RULF, or even IIas synthetic diamonds).

Once you have narrowed down your choice, you will find more detailed technical information in the product description.
