Designing multi-anvil assemblies:
The COMPRES cell assembly
project

Challenges:
• Thermocouple has to work well
• Wide range of P and T desirable for
each assembly
• Easy to assemble
• Not expensive
• Specs have to be repeatable from year
to year (well-documented)

Results for three “locked” assemblies
• Calibration curves
• Success rates
• Suitability for offline and in-situ work
• (note: because development of too many new
things can be confusing, we “lock” certain
designs so that they won’t change, while we
continue to develop others).
