A new design for a high-precision diamondcell is described. Two kinematically mounted steel disks are elastically deflected to generate pressure. This principle provides higher precision in the diamond anvil alignment than most sliding piston-cylinder or guide-pin devices at significantly lower cost. With this new diamondcell conical diamond anvils with an x-ray aperture of 85° were successfully tested to over using helium as a pressure medium. Anvil thickness of less than provides high x-ray transmission and low background, a significant improvement compared to beryllium or diamond-disk backing plates. Because the diamond anvils are supported by tungstencarbide seats, samples and pressure media can be annealed by external or laser heating to provide hydrostatic pressure conditions.
