Diacell® LeverDAC-Maxi

FTIR/Raman Spectroscopy, Mössbauer, Pmax = 50 GPa, Tmax = 800 K , WD = 10 mm, A = 52°

Diacell® LeverDAC Series

  • DAC based on a leverage mechanism designed to bring the diamond anvils together. This is the original design of diamond anvil cells
  • Specially suited for large area of high pressure optical spectroscopy. It has a numerical aperture of 0.44
  • Diamond anvils are mechanically force fitted into rings, a unique feature of Diacell® Diamond Anvil Cells to avoid repetitive epoxing
  • Optional internal resistive heater enables the operation of the LeverDAC-Maxi to temperatures of order of 800 K
  • The lever arm drive unit can be disconnected from the cell to facilitate interfacing to spectrometers
  • Maximum pressures of up to above 50 GPa may be obtained with the Diacell® LeverDAC-Maxi.

The majority of high pressure research is currently conducted at pressures below 50 GPa. Diacell® LeverDAC-Maxi design has consequently been optimised for use below 50 GPa, and with the addition of an internal ring heater is capable of raising the sample temperature up to 800 K, thereby making accessible an enormous area of P-T space for investigation.


The Diacell® Lever DAC-Maxi is suitable for many kinds of physical investigations including electronic, infrared, far-infrared, Mössbauer, and Raman spectroscopy, as well as electrical measurements and energy-dispersive X-ray diffraction.

Leading Brand Spectrometers Compatibility

The LeverDAC-Maxi ease of use and versatility has been endorsed by Renishaw as this diamond anvil cell can interface on Renishaw Raman systems (such as the inViaTM confocal Raman microscope and VisraRM Raman analyser) part of their Environmental cells and sample stages.

What is the maximum pressure I can achieve with the LeverDAC-Maxi and a given culet size?

Culet size (µm) 200 300 400 500 600 800 1000
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.
