This is an artist's rendition of the high pressure thermal conductance experiment in a diamond anvil cell. The flat tips of the diamond anvils are less than half a millimeter in diameter, and the metal film (gray), ruby sphere (red), and pressure medium (blue fluid) are sealed between the diamonds by a metal gasket (solid purple).
