In this paper we describe a cell in which pressures ranging from 0–300 kb may be applied to Mössbauer sources. This cell was first used for Mössbauer work by Pipkorn et al.  to study metallic iron. The general method, which makes use of pistons with supported taper, was itself first developed by Drickamer and co-workers for optical [2,3], electrical resistance , and X-ray  studies. The general principles of this method are described in connection with such studies and will not be discussed here.†
