A miniature cell for studies of transport and thermodynamic properties of materials to pressures to 10 kbar at 0.5 K has been developed. This is an improvement upon previous designs because its extremely small size (0.3 in. diam.×0.5 in.; 0.762 cm diam.×1.27 cm) allows it to be used in a confined space. In addition we have developed a highly precise mechanism for rotation that permits 360° rotation of this cell and particularly for low temperature rotations in a narrow bore, high field magnet.
