Rigaku High Pressure Workshop

This workshop is primarily geared towards crystallographers with little or no experience in high-pressure crystallography and who are interested in learning how to get started. Presentations are intended to be practical and educational and will include reviews of Diamond Anvil Cells (DACs) and accessories from two DAC manufacturers, sample preparation under pressure in DACs, sample mounting/centering on a Rigaku diffractometer and data collection, and data processing and correction.
