Paper Abstract

A method has been developed for making time-resolved measurements of the ruby fluorescence spectrum under shock compression. Preliminary experiments to demonstrate the feasibility of this technique are presented and recent modifications of the apparatus to provide quantitative data are summarized. Future experiments to determine the rate of change of wavelength with stress, as well as the effects of temperature and crystal orientation, are indicated.
