Study of the thermophysical properties of dense plasma has heen stimulated by the absence of a strict theory which would adequately describe the thermodynamic, transport, and optical properties of such a medium. A detailed analysis of presently available dense plasma models requires a comparison of their results to experiments performed with various chemical elements. Experimental data on thermodynamic properties and electrical conductivity of dense plasmas of a number of chemical elements shows a general tendency: The experimental enthaply and electrical conductivity of the plasma are lower than the corresponding theoretical values, the differences increasing with increase in charged particle concentration. With regard to optical properties the experimental situation is not well defined. For some elements experimental values have been found to be above theoretical ones, while for other elements the opposite is true. In connection with this further studies of the optical properties of dense plasma over a wide parameter range are necessary.
