Abstract

This paper presents the setup and pressure calibration of an 800-ton multi-anvil
apparatus installed at the Vrije Universiteit (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) to simulate
pressure-temperature conditions in planetary interiors. This high-pressure device can
expose cubic millimeter sized samples to near-hydrostatic pressures up to ~ 10 GPa
and temperatures exceeding 2100 °C. The apparatus is part of the Distributed
Planetary Simulation Facility (DPSF) of the EU Europlanet 2020 Research
Infrastructure, and significantly extends the pressure-temperature range that is
available through international access to this facility.
