"The so-called "Sumitomo Press" is a 2000-ton uniaxial split-sphere apparatus (USSA-2000) which is capable of generating pressures to 30 GPa and temperatures of 3000 K for sample volumes of 3 mm3, or pressures of 10 GPa for sample volumes of 30 mm3. It is particularly well-suited for synthesis experiments which require the generations of simultaneous high pressures and temperatures in large sample volumes for sustained periods of time. The recovered samples are later studied by a variety of analytical techniques, including X-ray diffraction, electron microprobe and microscopy, Brillouin and Raman spectroscopy, various synchrotron techniques, and ultrasonic interferometry in other Mineral Physics Institute-affiliated laboratories."
