The Highest sample pressures we are currently able to achieve at ISIS are attained with a clamped cell type sample container. We can achieve pressures of 10GPa with a Paris/Edinburgh Press.

If you have any questions about our high pressure capabilities or think you may want to use some of this equipment during your experiment then please contact the Pressure and Furnace team or the relevant instrument scientist.
