Abstract: This paper presents details of instrumental development to extend synchrotron X-ray microtomography techniques to in situ studies under static compression (high pressure), shear stress or the both conditions at simultaneous high temperatures. To achieve this, a new rotating tomography Paris–Edinburgh cell has been developed. This ultra-compact portable device easily and successfully adapted to various multi-modal synchrotron experimental set-up at ESRF, SOLEIL and DIAMOND is explained in detail. An in-depth description of proof of concept first experiments performed on a high resolution imaging beamline is then given, which illustrate the efficiency of the set-up and the data quality that can be obtained.
