Title: Reply to “Comment on ‘Molybdenum sound velocity and shear modulus softening under shock compression’”

Abstract

Here, we respond to the Comment by Errandonea et al. [Phys. Rev. B 92, 026101 (2015)] on their reinterpretation of our published data [Nguyen et al., Phys. Rev. B 89, 174109 (2014)]. In the original paper, we argued that there is no solid-solid phase transition along the Hugoniot at 2.1 Mbars. There is, however, a softening of the shear modulus starting at 2.6 Mbars. Errandonea et al. [Phys. Rev. B 92, 026101 (2015)] reinterpreted our data and concluded that there is a structural change near 2.3 Mbars on the Hugoniot. Finally, we will explore the differences and agreements in the two interpretations of our data.
