A dual level high pressure cell using Bridgman anvils was constructed to facilitate simultaneous measurement on the samples. The anvils were of 4 mm and 5 mm diameter respectively. The anvils were made from tungsten carbide (3% cobalt binder). Pyrophyllite and steatite were used as the gasket and the pressure transmitting medium. The cell was calibrated against the polymorphic phase transition of bismuth and ytterbium.
