Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

Principal Hugoniot (left panel) and the (, ) diagram (right panel) of NO. For comparison, previous experimental data (Ref. 2) and other theoretical results (Ref. 3) are also provided.

Image of FIG. 2.
FIG. 2.

Optical conductivity spectra along the principal Hugoniot. The data are obtained by averaging over 30 uncorrelated MD configurations. The dc conductivity as a function of pressure is shown in the inset.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

Optical reflectivity of shocked NO versus frequency at different pressures. Optical reflectivity versus pressure for wavelengths of 403, 813, and 1102 nm along the principal Hugoniot are also shown in inset.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Pair-correlation functions for N–N (black line), O–O (red line), N–O (blue line) along the principal Hugoniot of NO.

Image of FIG. 5.
FIG. 5.

The electronic density of states for different pressures of fluid NO. The Fermi energy is set to be zero.

Image of FIG. 6.
FIG. 6.

Variation of the charge density in fluid NO along the principal Hugoniot (1.60 g/cm3 upper left to 3.30 g/cm3 lower right). The and axis are also given in units of Å.
