Abstract

Shock compression techniques enable the investigation of extreme P-T states. In order to probe off-Hugoniot regions of P-T space, target makeup and laser pulse parameters must be carefully designed. HYADES is a hydrodynamic simulation code which has been successfully utilised to simulate shock compression events and refine the experimental parameters required in order to explore new P-T states in alkali metals. Here we describe simulations and experiments on potassium, along with the techniques required to access off-Hugoniot states.
