Paper Abstract

Recent advances in high-speed microscopy allow successful streak photography of nonreactive shock waves passing through individual explosive crystals. Measurement of the shock velocity both in the crystal and in the water surrounding the crystal allows us to determine the shock pressures. These diagnostic tools have the required temporal and spatial resolutions to enable us to study the microscopic processes in nonreactive and possibly reactive shock environments.
