To reduce the large absorption effect in diamond anvil pressure cells for soft x rays, perforated anvils employed as diamond-backing plates (DBPs) used in conjunction with miniature anvils (MAs) made of 1/100 carat diamonds were tested for high-pressure efficacy. Static pressures beyond 100 GPa were generated using a piston/cylinder cell having 0.2 mm culets. Tests were carried out in 0.1 mm cavities drilled in a Re gasket, using Ar samples and ruby chips for manometry. Except for a single… CONTINUE READING
