Patterned diamond anvils are now available from Almax easyLab

We are delighted to offer diamond anvils with deposited gold patterns for electrical transport measurements in a DAC.

Electrical transport experiments play a key role in the study of many interesting high pressure phenomena, including pressure-induced superconductivity, insulator-to-metal transitions, and quantum critical behaviour. High-pressure electrical transport experiments also play an important function in geophysics and Earth’s interior studies.

However such measurements in a diamond anvil cell (DAC) have been very challenging with several different 'recipes' being adopted with various degrees of success. Now, Almax easyLab are delighted to offer diamond anvils with deposited gold patterns for electrical transport measurements in a DAC. Our patterned diamond anvils significantly facilitate such experiments. Electrical contacts between the sample and the conductive patterns on the diamond anvil can be made in a variety of ways, such as with silver epoxy, silver paint and even soft solder.

Typical data that can be obtained with a DAC equipped with our patterned diamond anvils is shown in this document available for download here. We believe that Almax easyLab's patterned anvils together with the new Diacell® ChicagoDAC enable seamless transport measurements at extreme conditions.

We look forward to hearing back from you and would be happy to answer any questions you may have.  Just please contact us.
