What is High-Energy-Density Physics (HEDP)/
HEDP: Studying physics at very very high pressures (P > 1011 – 1015 Pa!)
Why do we care about HEDP and WDM?
- We care about them because they widely exist in nature:
- We care about them because they can now be created in laboratories:
- We care about them because they are routinely encountered in inertial confinement fusion (ICF) and HED experiments:
