High-Pressure Labs

In our high-pressure labs we experimentally simulate conditions ranging from the Earth's crust to the deep mantle.

Hydrothermal LaboratoryIHPV
In the Hydrothermal lab minerals as well as fluid inclusions can be synthesized up to 0.5 GPa.
Closure of the internally heated pressure vessel
Endloaded piston-cylinder apparatus for pressures up to 5.0 GPa
