Title: Dynamic compression of copper to over 450 GPa: A high-pressure standard

We obtained an absolute stress-density path for shocklessly compressed copper to over 450 GPa. A magnetic pressure drive is temporally tailored to generate shockless compression waves through over 2.5-mm-thick copper samples. Furthermore, the free-surface velocity data is analyzed for Lagrangian sound velocity using the iterative Lagrangian analysis (ILA) technique, which relies upon the method of characteristics. We correct for the effects of strength and plastic work heating to determine an isentropic compression path. By assuming a Debye model for the heat capacity, we can further correct the isentrope to an isotherm. Finally, our determination of the isentrope and isotherm of copper represents a highly accurate pressure standard for copper to over 450 GPa.
