Abstract

We present a device which allows compressed gases to be loaded into large volume opposed anvils used for high pressure neutron scattering in the multi-10GPa range. The gases are initially loaded into clamps which can then be inserted into VX-ParisEdinburgh load frames. The system is compatible with all inert gases as well as hydrogen and permits loading pressures of up to 3kbar for which most gases have densities close to that of the liquid at ambient pressure. The device should have applications for the study of simple molecular solids as well as for loading gases as pressure-transmitting media.
