Abstract

A modified version of a well-known apparatus is described, which is capable of delivering a compressive uniaxial stress beyond the range of stresses previously attained. With a simple rearrangement the same system may also be used to apply a tensile uniaxial stress. The apparatus can be readily used for optical measurements in solids under conditions of fixed or variable temperature in the range from 77 K to at least room temperature.
