Diacell® Bragg-(G) Plus

X-ray Spectroscopy, Pmax = 100 GPa, T = 300 K, WD = 14 mm, A = 90°

Diacell® Bragg Series

  • The Diacell® Bragg-(G) Plus uses conical Boehler-Almax anvils, making this cell the true benchmark for high pressure X-ray studies
  • The large angle apertures enable diffraction work with high transmission factor and very low background
  • The Diacell® Bragg-(G) Plus also lends itself to optical experiments at high pressures
  • Being a gas membrane driven means that pressure within the cell can be changed whilst the sample is mounted on the X-ray stage, saving considerable time
  • Maximum pressures of up to above 100 GPa may be obtained with the Diacell® Bragg-(G) Plus

The Diacell® Bragg-(G) Plus is one of our most popular cells being equivalent to the Bragg-(S) Plus, but designed to incorporate the gas membrane drive mechanism. The benefits of this type of drive include the ability to apply very small incremental loads, remote operation and the achievement of higher pressures due to absence of friction associated with bolts. Pressures of 100 GPa are achieved with the Bragg-(G) Plus using 200 μm anvil culets.

The Bragg-(G) Plus incorporates conical anvils. This means that the beryllium support plates found on the conventional Bragg-(G) cell were replaced by tungsten carbide ones in the Bragg-(G) Plus.

Naturally, it is also possible to convert a Bragg-(G) to a Bragg-(G) Plus (and vice-versa) by replacing the hemisphere, lower plate, anvil support plates and anvils. Please enquiry for more details.

Another variation of the Bragg-(G) is the Diacell® Bragg (G) – Large Sight Holes. The lateral sight holes of this Diamond Anvil Cell have been widened in an elliptical shape to enable up to 25° and 130° degrees of respectively vertical and horizontal apertures.


This cell is ideal for X-Ray diffraction and related work.

What is the maximum pressure I can achieve with the Bragg-(G) Plus and a given culet size?

Culet size (µm) 200 300 400 500 600 800 1000
Bragg-(G) Plus Pmax (GPa) (*) 114 98 63 41 28 16 10

(*) The Pmax values are only indicative. The maximum pressure achievable with a DAC is influenced by many others experimental parameters, like the gasket characteristics (material, thickness and hole size) or the pressure transmitting medium.
