Title: Measurements of the sound velocity of shock-compressed liquid silica to 1100 GPa

Abstract

The sound velocity in a shocked material provides information about its off-Hugoniot behavior of a material at high pressures. This information can be used to extend the knowledge gained in Hugoniot experiments and to model the re-shock and release behavior. Silica is one of the most important materials for equation of state studies because of its prevalence in the earth’s interior and the well-defined properties of α-quartz. This paper presents sound velocity measurements of amorphous fused silica over the range 200 to 1100 GPa using laser-driven shocks and an α- quartz standard. These measurements demonstrate the technique proposed by Fratanduono et al [J. Appl. Phys 116, 033517 (2014)] to determine the sound velocity from the arrival of acoustic perturbations. The results compare favorably to the SESAME 7386 equation-of-state table. The Grüneisen parameter was calculated from the sound velocity data and found to be Γ=0.66 ± 0.05 at densities above 6 g/cm3, an increase in precision by a factor of two over previous measurements.
