Diamond Anvil Cell for Quantum Design’s MPMS®
The miniature diamond anvil cell easyLab® Mcell Ultra builds on the success of the clamp cell easyLab® Mcell 10. However, in contrast to the Mcell 10, the Mcell Ultra enables measurements up to much higher pressures, above 15 GPa (150 kbar). Typically, one can expect pressures of up to 20 GPa when using diamond anvils with culets of 0.50 mm. This is the recommended smallest culet size for the Mcell Ultra. Beyond this limit, the lateral alignment of the anvils becomes difficult to achieve. Also, the very small sample size makes the magnetic signal difficult to pick up and to extract from the background signal of the cell.
The easyLab® Mcell Ultra has a diameter of 8.5 mm and a length of 35 mm and is designed to work in commercial superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID) magnetometers, in particular the QD MPMS®.
Indeed, the easyLab® Mcell Ultra is supplied as a complete package. It provides end-users with all the necessary primary components of the pressure cell as well as interfacing parts to the sample rod of the MPMS®.
