© ESRF/Blascha Faust This photo shows the experimental set-up at the ESRF beamline. The Paris-Edinburgh press is to the left ; the magma rock sample is compressed in its centre to pressures of up to 36.000 atmospheres, and then heated by a resistor to up to 1700 degrees Celsius. The slits on the right filter the X-ray beam reaching the detector.
