Clamped Cells

Clamps and continuously loaded gas and liquid pressure cells are available from a pool, including 22 GPa Paris-Edinburgh cells operated down to 4 K. Automated racks are also provided to simplify their operation.

For support during operating cycles, Local Contacts, please call our technicians in charge of high-pressure equipment.

High Pressures

High-Pressure Clamped Cells

The ILL high pressure clamped cells allow neutron scattering and spectroscopy experiments at pressures up to 30 kbar. Temperatures from 40mK to 320 K, with single crystal, powder or liquid samples can be achieved depending on the cell. Clamped cells are loaded to the desired pressure in a press and then clamped using a locking nut before being transferred into the neutron beam (directly or inside a cryostat).

The pressure transmitting medium can be liquids like "fluorinert" , (a fluorocarbon) , deuterated hydrocarbon or alcohol (such as iso-propanol). Material in the beam is sintered alumina, CuBe, stainless-steel or null matrix Ti-Zr alloy. Clamped cells may be mounted in top-loading or bottom-loading Orange cryostats.

These pressure cells are available on request. Sufficient advance notice to sane(at)ill.fr is required for their reservation and preparation.
