There are 3 diameters for these anvils. Typical dimensions are shown in the table below. The choice will be dictated by the type of diamond anvil cells from Almax easyLab you have :
3.10 mm Diacell Design
2.50 mm Diacell Design
CryoDAC Nitro, CryoDAC PPMS
µScopeDAC-RT(G), HT(G), HT(S)
LeverDAC – Mega, Maxi, Mini
2.00 mm Diacell Design
The Diacell design diamond anvils can be used both for optical spectroscopy and for X-ray diffraction measurements. Force-fitted into anvil rings these anvils are characterized by mechanical stability and ease of replacement. Moreover using anvil rings has the advantage of avoiding the use of epoxy resins or other adhesives, all of which tend to be unreliable at very low temperatures.
These anvils can be used in conjunction with:
Almax easyLab diamond anvil cells:
Optical: CryoDAC-ST, CryoDAC-LT, CryoDAC Nitro, CryoDAC Mega, µScopeDAC-RT(G), µScopeDAC-HT(G), µScopeDAC-HT(S), SymmDAC
X-ray: HeliosDAC, OmniDAC, OmniDAC-LT, Diaclamp
Electrical: CryoDAC PPMS
Magnetic: Mcell Ultra
Newly designed or existing DACs (retrofit):
In most cases, the WC seat can be adapted to the dimension requirements of your DAC. Consult us.
How to chose the culet size ?
The culet size is to be decided as a function of the maximum pressure or the sample size. Typical sample space is given by the gasket thickness (typically 0.10 mm or less) and the central hole diameter (typically 30-50% culet size)
|Pmax (GPa) (*)
|Culet size (mm)
||< 0.20 mm, bevels up to 0.30 mm at 8°
(*) 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.
How the culet looks like?
||Culet with single bevel
||Culet with double bevel
