Abstract: High temperature is of paramount importance in high pressure science. One of the leading tools in this respect is the resistively heated diamond anvil cell (DAC), where the heat is provided by small heaters, positioned close to the diamond/gasket/sample region (internally heated DAC, IHDAC) or by wrapping the DAC body into bigger heaters (externally heated DAC, EHDAC). Although IHDACs can reach sample temperatures higher than 1000 K, they are difficult to handle and the heater/diamond/gasket/sample region may be affected by strong thermal gradients potentially hindering accurate temperature measurements. Here we present a novel EHDAC, which overcomes these issues by uniquely joining: (i) high mechanical precision for multi-Mbar, (ii) high temperature alloys for operating to 1000 K, (iii) membrane or screw driven, easily switchable between each other, (iv) operation into a vacuum chamber, (v) uniform temperature, (vi) facile handling, and (vii) possibility to add internal heaters for achieving even higher temperatures.
