High-Pressure Techniques

  • R. Ingalls


In this paper we describe a cell in which pressures ranging from 0–300 kb may be applied to Mössbauer sources. This cell was first used for Mössbauer work by Pipkorn et al. [1] to study metallic iron. The general method, which makes use of pistons with supported taper, was itself first developed by Drickamer and co-workers for optical [2,3], electrical resistance [3], and X-ray [4] studies. The general principles of this method are described in connection with such studies and will not be discussed here.
