A high‐energy laser pulse has been used to drive a shock wave into a foil target. Pressures of 0.3 TPa in aluminum and 0.6 TPa in a gold overlay were inferred from simultaneous measurements of the shock velocities. The techniques will be useful in determining high‐pressure equation‐of‐state parameters for a wide variety of materials.
