The development of experimental apparatus for high pressure studies at low temperatures in our laboratory can be sonne what arbitrarily divided into three parts: the generation, the transmission, and the containment of pressure. Much of the development has followed lines pioneered by Bridgman; some of the problems are peculiar to low temperatures.1
