The technique of generating very high pressure by means of Diamond Anvil Cells (DAC) for Mössbauer Effect applications is outlined. A comprehensive description is presented of the principles of DAC, modification for the use in Mössbauer Spectroscopy (MS), the Merrill-Bassett and Bassett cells, of pressure measurements, of gasketing and collimation, and of hydrostatic media. Examples of151Eu,119Sn and129I are given, showing the feasibility of DAC applications in MS. Other isotopes with potential use for high pressure MS using DAC are suggested.
