Abstract [en]

A recent article [Y. Shen, R. S. Kumar, M. Pravica, and M. F. Nicol, Rev. Sci. Instrum. 75, 4450 (2004)] argues that silicone fluids are almost ideal pressure transmitting media at room temperature. However, silicone fluids solidify (vitrify) at pressures near 1 GPa, much lower than the solidification pressures of commonly used pressure media, and crystallization may occur under some conditions. Other fluids may thus be a better choice for transmitting pressure to strain sensitive samples in the range 1-10 GPa.
