Sapphire anvils now available on

synthetic sapphire are proud to offer synthetic sapphire anvils.  In the first instance we are able to manufacture Diacell design anvils, both X=2.5mm and X=3.1mm, as well as Conical anvils of D=3.3mm/85deg.

Sapphire has almost no peaks above 1000 cm−1 in the Raman spectrum and no absorption in the ultraviolet range.  It is therefore especially useful for studies in those spectral regions.  Sapphire may be used as a substitute for diamonds in the pressure range up to about 20-25 GPa.

The synthetic sapphire used by is grade 1, which means it is free of insertions, block boundaries, twins, microbubbles and scattering centers.
