2002 AIP Conference Proceedings  
The results on measurements of thermodynamic properties and electrical conductivity of Helium compressed with shock wave reverberation technique up to pressure and density of 200 GPa and 1.4 g/cc are presented. The increase of the Helium conductivity up to the values of 1000 1/(Ohm-cm) was found at the densities more than 0.7 g/cc and temperature more than 15 kK. Comparison of the experimental results with different theoretical models of thermodynamic and transport properties of shocked Helium was done.
