Abstract

Laser shock compression experiments on precompressed samples offer the possibility to explore extreme material states unreachable by static or single-shock compression techniques alone. We have found significant increases in static compression pressure in a wide-opening and thin diamond precompression cell. This suggests that the precompression target is adaptable to advanced coupling techniques with laser-driven dynamic compression methods. The novel coupling techniques proposed give the potential to access outstanding material states required in planetary and condensed-matter physics.
