When interacting with matter, high-power lasers can produce plasmas with the highest macroscopic energy density that can be obtained in the laboratory. Such plasmas can also exhibit the most extreme values of other quantities, notably pressure, density, velocity, velocity gradient and acceleration. In this talk the author will describe experiments undertaken to date that investigate material under these extreme conditions as well as future experiments that are planned for the next generation of high-power lasers.
