Title A high temperature cell for simultaneous electrical resistance and neutron diffraction measurements
Abstract An in-situ cell which allows the electrical resistance of a sample pellet to be measured whilst performing neutron diffraction experiments has been developed at the ISIS pulsed neutron source. The sample is held between two spring loaded platinum electrodes embedded in a boron nitride clamp assembly, with the resistance measured using the four-probe method. An outer quartz glass jacket allows the atmosphere within the sample enclosure to be controlled and the entire device can be accommodated within a standard ISIS neutron furnace for measurements at temperatures up to 1270 K. The operation of this cell is illustrated using data for the structural, magnetic and electrical properties of chalcopyrite, CuFeS2, collected over the temperature range 398K to 873K on the POLARIS powder diffractometer at ISIS.
