Many outstanding individuals contributed to the success of this project. The authors wish to
express our gratitude to the following people.
Ron Kaye and Tracy Vogler contributed early in this project through helpful technical
discussions regarding magnetic field interactions and shear wave propagation respectively.
The experiments were conducted at the Sandia DICE facility where Randy Hickman and Jesse
Lynch were responsible for operation of the MPG and Veloce. Sheri Payne was responsible for
proper installation and fielding of the transverse VISAR diagnostics. Aaron Bowers assembled
the shot hardware including the composite panels and the sample - anvil assembly.
Andy Shay designed and drafted much of the custom hardware required to implement an external
magnetic field on Veloce. He and Jim Puissant also spent many hours in the winding shop
fabricating the prototype magnet coils.
John Jojola and Gerard Torres assembled and tested the MPG hardware prior to delivery to
Early numeric simulation work on this project was completed by Greg Weirs and John
Finally, management support for this project was consistent and greatly appreciated.
Specifically, the willingness of Randy Summers, Dawn Flicker, and Ron Kaye to lend personnel
to this project resulted in a diverse team. The support of Tom Mehlhorn helped launch this
effort. Clint Hall and subsequently Mark Herrmann supported this effort by making the DICE
facilities and personnel available. Mike Desjarlais and the entire SEE Investment Area Team
provided generous funding which ultimately led to the successful development of an important
new capability for Sandia.
