We offer a large range of diameters ranging from 2.50 mm up to 4.75 mm typically.
Generally thick girdle and large table are more suited to withstand the highest pressures.
All dimensions are exact and consistent.
Optimum mechanical strength.
These anvils can be used in conjunctions with various designs of diamond anvil cells and for both X-Ray or Optical spectroscopy.
If you have a particular design of a diamond anvil cell and would like to use this particular design of diamonds, you can consult us for our expert advise on diameter and optical properties choice best suited for your requirements.
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
