Multi-anvil press calibration


14/8 assembly pressure calibration

Different pressure calibrants were used in order to probe the following phase transitions: Bismuth I-II, II-III, III-V (red), quartz-coesite and coesite-stishovite (blue), and graphite-diamond (orange). XRD analyses on retrieved samples were performed at ASU (Kurt Leinenweber) and UCSD (Olivia Greave’s lab).

14/8 assembly temperature calibration

Temperature calibration was performed using Au melting experiments (led by SIO postdoc Johnny Zhang).
