Neutron pressure devices are available in cooperation with the responsible members of LNS.
Before writing a proposal involving pressure, please check the feasibility with both the instrument scientist, and the relevant pressure cell responsible:
- J. White: clamp cells - single crystal inelastic and elastic neutron scattering, Paris-Edinburgh Press - powder samples, single crystals in favourable cases.
- D. Sheptiakov: clamp cells - powder neutron diffraction.
Below is a link to a file that provides an overview of the routinely available pressure options at SINQ.
Summary of Pressure Cell Options at SINQ (updated Oct' 2016)
Crucial information concerning each routinely available pressure device is summarised in the table below.

Below are some recent papers published where high pressure neutron scattering results are obtained. The results contained in these papers can give you some idea of what can be achieved using high pressure at SINQ:
