Studies were conducted to establish the technical feasibility of obtaining neutron diffraction data on specimens under high hydrostatic pressure. Laue patterns of RbI and RbCl were obtained at pressures up to 80,000 psi in a uniquely designed pressure bomb. The RbI transformed completely at 60,000 psi, but only an incomplete transition was observed in RbCl. There are indications of possible differences in the transformation mechanism for these materials. It is concluded that neutron Laue patterns are feasible at pressures up to 80,000 psi and that the method could be extended to perhaps 150,000 psi.
