2007 The Review of High Pressure Science and Technology  
Laser-driven dynamic compression has been used to study extreme conditions of various materials. Very high pressures and temperatures can be generated up to more than 10 3 GPa and 10 5 K, respectively. This approach, which has been developed as a strong driving force in the inertial confinement fusion research, now provides a very wide range of pressures, densities and even low temperatures. This review presents a part of the past 10-year works on Hugoniot based equation-of-state (EOS), current
