Enterprise Sciences supported experimental research at the Los Alamos National Laboratory to study physics problems associated with the understanding of near solid density matter that is heated to temperatures in the vicinity of 10,000 C. This involved feasibility assessments of launching and diagnosing high pressure shock waves in such extreme conditions and the design of new diagnostics that could be used to measure the plasma properties of this hot and dense matter.
