Paper Abstract

For the past years we have developed several optical techniques to measure properties of shock waves. The fiber optic probe (FOP) is developed to measure the shock-wave velocity and/or the detonation velocity inside an explosive. The space resolution can be as small as 0.5 mm. Single fibers are used as velocity pins, and as devices to measure the flatness of flyers. Arrays of fibers are used to measure the curvature of a shock or detonation front. Also a Fabry-Perot velocity Interferometer System is constructed to measure the velocity of the flyer of an electric gun and the particle velocity in a shock wave. It is possible to combine these two measurements to determine simultaneously the flyer velocity that induces a shock wave in sample and the particle velocity in a window material at the back in a single streak record.
