Title: Equation of state, adiabatic sound speed, and Gruneisen coefficient of boron carbide along the principal Hugoniot to 700 GPa

Abstract

We describe a new equation of state (EOS) experimental technique that enables the study of thermodynamic derivatives into the TPa regime and apply it to boron carbide (B4C). The data presented here are the first principal Hugoniot sound speed measurements reported using a laser-driven shock platform, providing a new means to explore the high-pressure off-Hugoniot response of opaque materials. Furthermore, the extended B4C Hugoniot suggests the presence of a new high-pressure phase, as recently predicted by molecular dynamics simulations, adding to the complexity of the existing phase diagram.
