Several techniques have been previously described for the x-ray examination of compounds that cannot be exposed to the atmosphere. However, most of these devises are unsuitable for a geiger type x-ray diffraction spectrometer, and their usefulness is limited to equipment utilizing cameras. A very convenient and inexpensive sealed sample holder, which is described in this paper, is based upon the large specimen area available in a focusing camera and geiger type spectrometer, and which can be successfully employed to either prevent sample exposure to the atmosphere or provide a special atmosphere to the sample for chemical studies.
