Diacell® μScopeDAC-RT(G)

Gas Membrane Driven Room Temp. Microscope Cell
Part of the Diacell μScopeDAC series

[Formerly MC–Microscope Cell]

Product Description

This versatile gas membrane driven diamond anvil cell meets the growing need to reach very high pressures and be compatible with the optical and physical constraints of microscopes.

The Diacell® μScopeDAC-RT(G) is just 18 mm thick along the optical axis and is symmetrical about the sample.  Thus, the physical distance from the objective to the sample between the diamond anvils is only 9 mm.  This makes the Diacell® μScope DAC-RT(G) compatible with most, if not all, commercial Raman and FTIR systems.


A large and increasing percentage of optical and spectroscopic observations is now made using microscopes. In particular, Raman instruments are commonly sold with integral microscopes to enable efficient scattered light collection, as well as to permit Raman mapping of complex samples. Similarly, FTIR spectrometers are often supplied with reflecting (Cassegrain) microscopes. Diacell® μScopeDAC-RT(G) is ideal for such applications.
