ABSTRACT: Physics of high energy density (HED) matter is an ever-expanding field of research with very wide applications to basic and applied physics and with great potential for revolutionary technological and industrial applications. Over the past decades, static as well as dynamic configurations have been widely used to research this interesting field of science. Recent technological advances in the development of high-quality well-focused strongly bunched intense particle beams have led to the idea of generating samples of HED matter using isochoric and uniform heating of solid targets by such intense beams. Theoretical work reported in this paper explores the possibility of carrying out novel experiments using the future Facility for Antiprotons and Ion Research at Darmstadt.
