High-Pressure Clamped Cells
The ILL high-pressure clamped cells allow neutron scattering and spectroscopy experiments at pressures up to 30 kbar. Temperatures from 40 mK 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 a liquid such as "fluorinert" (a fluorocarbon) , deuterated hydrocarbon or alcohol (such as iso-propanol). The 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.
