We present a modified Merrill–Bassett diamond anvil cell for performing electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) experiments under high pressure. The design centers on two mutually coupled TiO2 dielectric resonators mounted close to the diamonds. This configuration produces a tangential microwave magnetic field at the gasket, which is a prerequisite for a magnetic resonance experiment. Our simple device has a considerable advantage over previous approaches for EPR under pressure in both its compactness and sensitivity.
