We have designed and constructed a new system for loading gases at high pressure into diamond anvil cells at pressures up to 200 MPa. The gases are used either as quasi-hydrostatic pressure media surrounding the sample or as the sample itself. The diamond cell is sealed using a clamping mechanism, which permits nearly any type of diamond anvil cell to be used. Online ruby fluorescence and video imaging systems allow in situ monitoring of the pressure and gasket deformation as the cell is sealed… 

Simple imaging for the diamond anvil cell: Applications to hard-to-reach places.

The essential concept of diamond anvil cell technology, together with recent developments and its integration with other extreme environments, are introduced and an overview of the latest developments in HP synchrotron techniques, their applications, and current problems are provided.

Note: A novel method for in situ loading of gases via x-ray induced chemistry.

A novel method to load oxygen in a sealed diamond anvil cell via the x-ray induced decomposition of potassium chlorate is developed and demonstrated, which is useful in loading even more challenging, difficult-to-load gases such as hydrogen and also to load multiple gases.
