GSECARS built a dedicated lab for diamond anvil cell users. The DAC Lab is located directly across from the GSECARS User Area. Users will find increased bench space, a horizontal laminar clean hood, microscopes, a portable glove box and an enclosed laser for cutting gaskets. A new TopGun compressed nitrogen air gun is available as well.
