Title: Shock compression experiments on Lithium Deuteride (LiD) single crystals

Shock compression experiments in the few hundred GPa (multi-Mabr) regime were performed on Lithium Deuteride (LiD) single crystals. This study utilized the high velocity flyer plate capability of the Sandia Z Machine to perform impact experiments at flyer plate velocities in the range of 17-32 km/s. Measurements included pressure, density, and temperature between ~200-600 GPa along the Principal Hugoniot – the locus of end states achievable through compression by large amplitude shock waves – as well as pressure and density of re - shock states up to ~900 GPa. Lastly, the experimental measurements are compared with recent density functional theory calculations as well as a new tabular equation of state developed at Los Alamos National Labs.
