Abstract

We have examined the feasibility of using a large‐diameter, projectile‐target impact to carry out one‐dimensional, isentropic compression experiments on molecular fluids. By employing a three‐layered target geometry, with a thin foam driver layer and a thick, high‐impedance anvil layer, liquid H_2O can be compressed to a state within 0.1% of its principal isentrope at pressures up to about 30 GPa. The pressure and density of the state achieved can be determined from electromagnetic particle velocity gauges imbedded on the interfaces bounding the sample.
