    An internal resistive heater contained completely between the anvil faces of a diamond anvil cell has been used to conduct experiments up to 10 GPa and temperatures up to 3000 K. There is evidence that pressures up to 50 GPa can be achieved with smaller anvil faces and smaller heater assembly....
