Paper Abstract

A four channel fiber optic radiometer has been built to measure the temperature and extent of reaction of a detonation before the shock wave destroys the collection optics. The system is designed to be calibrated both in terms of the relative radiant response and the absolute sensitivity of each channel. Fiber optics and associated data acquisition electronics allow synchronization of radiometric and pressure transducer signals to under 10 nsec.
