This diamond anvil design is essentially an optimised Drukker cut anvil where the height/base ratio has been maximised (for a particular size of diamond).  The smaller the height/base ratio is, the lower the maximum load the anvil will sustain.

Drukker (standard) design diamond anvils have been shown (c.f. M. Seal, High Temperatures-High Pressures, vol 16, pg. 573 [1984]) to have optimum strength.


Material: synthetic type IIa cvd diamond (also referred to as type IIac)
Cut: Diacell design
Girdle diameter, X: 2.50 mm
Anvil height, H: 1.55 mm


This is the diamond anvil design used in most of the Diacell diamond anvil cells suitable for infrared experiments.
