Generation of pressures over 40 GPa using a Kawai-type multi-anvil press with tungsten carbide anvils


highlight

In this study, we have succeeded in generating pressures over 40 GPa using a multi-anvil large-volume press IRIS-15 at the BGI with carbide anvil for the first time. This record was replaced by our previous study [Ishii et al., 2017], which generated pressures exceeding 60 GPa.
