The Diamond Anvil Cell Laboratory is mainly devoted to high-pressure experimentation.

Diamond Anvil Cell

The laboratory is currently undergoing a major redevelopment. It contains single-crystal diffractometers that can be used with diamond-anvils cells for the investigation of materials at pressures up to 100 kbar. 

We expect that the new facilities that we are installing will allow us both to work to higher pressures and to make measurements at simultaneous high P and T.
