Title: Rarefaction velocities in shocked lead

Abstract

By use of the optical analyzer technique, the bulk sound velocity in shocked lead has been measured at nine points along its Hugoniot in the pressure range 54.5 to 380 GPa. The lowest-pressure points exhibit no sign of solid behavior. The bulk sound velocity is essentially linear with respect to density, and the Gruneisen parameter, ..gamma.., fails to follow a constant p..gamma.. model. Results are consistent with zero-pressure values.
