The Advanced Photon Source (APS) is a third-generation synchrotron now in operation at Argonne National Laboratory. A national user facility for research in the Earth sciences is being constructed by the GeoSoilEnviro group of the Consortium for Advanced Radiation Sources (GSECARS). One component of this effort is the program for diamond anvil cell (DAC) research, to study materials at ultrahigh pressure and temperature conditions using a variety of techniques. In this paper, we describe the DAC facility that is being developed at the GSECARS. Recent progress in developing a laser heating system is presented.
