A System of Pressure Calibration for the Range 0.05–1.0 Mbar Based on Shock Wave Equations of State for Cu, Mo, Pd, and Ag
With modern experimental techniques it is possible to conduct a wide ränge of scientific experiments at static pressures near 1 Mbar and at higher pressures [1,2]. Recent primary calibration  based on the pressure-volume functions of Cu, Mo, Pd, and Ag was done for measurement of pressure to 1 Mbar, but the only secondary scale currently available for use at these pressures is the ruby fluorescence pressure gauge. Although the ruby scale is now well calibrated, there is a great need for intercomparison of internal pressure Standards that can be adopted more generally in high-pressure research where the ruby fluorescence method cannot be used. Furthermore, the new primary calibration Standard can be used to correlate previous data of all types.
