Microscope pressure cells

Imaging samples under a microscope at high pressure is technically challenging because of the need to obtain high resolution while also having suitably thick windows to maintain the pressure on the sample. Hugh Vass, a technician in the School of Physics and Astronomy, worked with my student S. Lucas Black, to develop a series of different microscope pressure cells that have pressure ranges up to several kbar, and can achieve good enough resolution to see single bacterial cells. In follow-up work, Hugh discovered a new way to make microscope pressure cell windows (the "cover-slip cell"), which allows a step-change in imaging resolution, allowing us to image single molecules at high pressure.
