        The Extreme Environments Laboratory is an experimental mineral physics laboratory in the Department of Geological and Environmental Sciences at Stanford University which has a diamond anvil cell sample preparation facility (including microscopes, EDM, fume hood, etc.) and two high pressure micro-Raman spectroscopy systems (one of which can be equipped with a cryostat). We have installed gas-loading system which is capable to load helium and neon in the current stage. We are currently installing a double sided laser heating system which will be ready later this year. In addition we are active users of national and international x-ray, neutron, and laser users facilities.
