Warm Dense Matter (WDM) or the High Energy Density (HED) states are useful for instance, to describe properties in giant planets. They are usually achieved in laboratory conditions by using high energy (hundreds of J) and long duration (ns) lasers. An alternative for creating matter in extreme states is described in this chapter. It relies on the formation of strong shocks driven by highly energetic electrons generated by low-energy short-pulse duration laser interacting with the solid target. Such approach opens new pathways in studies and benchmarking of matter in extreme conditions, including study of Equation of State (EOS), structural dynamics on smaller installations, which are easier accessible for researchers.
