A micrometer (with its own stand) specifically designed to measure the thickness of gaskets used in diamond anvil experiments. The micrometer has a resolution of 0.00005 in./0.001 mm and digital display.

The tips of the micrometer have a conical shape ending a round end which is shaped as a half sphere.

The conical tips have a 15° angle, finishing with a diameter of 0.60 mm. The half sphere has a radius of around 0.30 mm.

This make this device suitable to measure gasket indentation down to 0.20 – 0.30 mm in diameter depending on the depth of indentation.

What is the minimum culet size that can be used with the micrometer? 

The gasket thickness micrometre has a tip which typically has a radius of 0.30 mm.

Consequently the minimum culet size will depend on the shape of the diamond anvil used to pre-indent the gasket.

The shallower the pavilion angle of the diamond, the smallest the culet size will be.

The table below gives an approximate idea of calculated culet sizes as function of the pavilion angle
