A compact ceramic high-temperature cell for Brillouin spectroscopy was designed and tested. The cell can be mounted onto a three- or four-circle goniometer and allows collection of the full set of elastic constants of minerals to temperatures in excess of 1500 K from samples with dimensions of 100×100×20 µm or smaller. As a test of the instrument the single-crystal elastic constants of MgO were measured to 1510(10) K, and are found to be in excellent agreement with earlier independent results. The high-temperature cell should be useful for other types of spectroscopic measurements, and is especially useful in situations where spectral properties vary with the scattering geometry.
