Diacell® LeverDAC-Maxi

Lever Arm Driven Optical Cell
Part of the LeverDAC series

[Formerly Diacell B-05]

Product Description

The majority of high pressure research is currently conducted at pressures below 50 GPa.  Diacell® LeverDAC-Maxi design has consequently been optimised for use below 50 GPa, and with the addition of an internal ring heater is capable of raising the sample temperature to above 500°C, thereby making accessible an enormous area of P-T space for investigation.


The Diacell® Lever DAC-Maxi is suitable for many kinds of physical investigations including electronic, infrared, far-infrared, Mössbauer, and Raman spectroscopy, as well as electrical measurements and energy-dispersive X-ray diffraction.
