Multiport high-pressure fluid cell (MHPFC) for photon and electron beams

Microfluidic cells for X-ray and electron beam investigation of chemical reactions and physical transformations at high pressures of 300+ bar will be developed, based on engineered nano-membranes. The novel cells will contribute to progress in fields as diverse as materials science, chemistry, geology, and biology by enabling atomic and molecular-level characterization of behavior of materials at high pressures, catalysis and reactions at high pressure, geologic ores formation in the deep Earth crust, and understanding deep-see marine biology and biochemical processes.
