Title: A compact membrane-driven diamond anvil cell and cryostat system for nuclear resonant scattering at high pressure and low temperature

Abstract

In order to study the vibrational and thermal dynamic properties of materials using the nuclear resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (NRIXS) and the hyperfine interactions and magnetic properties using the synchrotron Mössbauer spectroscopy (SMS) at simultaneously high pressure (multi-Mbar) and low temperature (T< 10 K), a new miniature panoramic diamond anvil cell (mini-pDAC) as well as a special gas membrane driven mechanism have been developed and implemented at 3ID, Advanced Photon Source. The gas membrane system allows in situ pressure tuning of the mini- pDAC at low temperature. The mini-pDAC fits into a specially designed compact liquid helium flow cryostat system to achieve low temperature, where liquid helium flows through the holder of the mini-pDAC to cool the sample more efficiently. The sample temperature as low as 9 K has been achieved. Through the membrane, the sample pressure as high as 1.4 Mbar has been generated from this mini-pDAC. The instrument has been routinely used at 3ID for NRIXS and SMS studies. In this paper, technical details of the mini-pDAC, membrane engaging mechanism and the cryostat system are described, and some experimental results are discussed.
