13 IDD Diamond Anvil Cell (DAC)

The main goal of the diamond anvil cell program is to address geochemical and geophysical problems across the entire pressure- temperature range of the Earth and other terrestrial planets.

13 IDD Multi-anvil Press (LVP)

The 1000T large volume press (LVP) hosts our T25 Kawai-type multi-anvil apparatus and our D-DIA-30 apparatus, which allow us to conduct coordinated studies on earth-related materials in both the solid and liquid states under extreme PT conditions down to the lower mantle.
