Simutis, G; Bollhalder, A; Zolliker, M; Küspert, J; Wang, Q; Das, D; Van Leeuwen, F; Ivashko, O; Gutowski, O; Philippe, J; Kracht, T; Glaevecke, P; Adachi, T; von Zimmermann, M; Van Petegem, S; Luetkens, H; Guguchia, Z; Chang, J; Sassa, Y; Bartkowiak, M; Janoschek, M (2023). In situ uniaxial pressure cell for x-ray and neutron scattering experiments. Review of Scientific Instruments, 94(1):013906.

Abstract

We present an in situ uniaxial pressure device optimized for small angle x-ray and neutron scattering experiments at low-temperatures and high magnetic fields. A stepper motor generates force, which is transmitted to the sample via a rod with an integrated transducer that continuously monitors the force. The device has been designed to generate forces up to 200 N in both compressive and tensile configurations, and a feedback control allows operating the system in a continuous-pressure mode as the temperature is changed. The uniaxial pressure device can be used for various instruments and multiple cryostats through simple and exchangeable adapters. It is compatible with multiple sample holders, which can be easily changed depending on the sample properties and the desired experiment and allow rapid sample changes.
