Temperature Measurement on Shocked Surfaces

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

We have used a two-stage gas gun to address issues relating to the accurate determination of the temperature of a shocked metal surface at a metal/LiF interface. We have investigated the light flash generated by the dynamics at the interface, the light sources at the LiF boundary that can contaminate the emission from the metal surface, and the light emitted from defects in the LiF crystal as it is being shocked. A seven-channel spectrometer with fiber-optic transmission of light from the target was used, and a Hohlraum geometry was used to increase the effective emissivity of the target. The method ... continued below

The method that yielded the best results is described and is expected to be useful for a wide range of applications.
