Indirectly-driven laser-produced shocks have been used to perform absolute equation of state measurements of low-Z solids in the pressure regime above 10 Mbar (1 TPa). The materials examined here are polystyrene and beryllium, two candidate materials for ablators in inertial confinement fusion ignition target designs. The measurements were made in regimes in which the materials are expected to perform in ignition targets.
