Ab initio simulations of dense liquid deuterium: Comparison with gas gun shock wave experiments

Abstract

We present first principles molecular dynamics simulations of the equation of state of liquid deuterium up to eightfold compression and temperatures between 2000 and 20000 K. We report significant technical improvements over previous density functional calculations leading to excellent agreement with gas gun shock wave measurements, which have provided well… (More)
