Paper Abstract

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory's (LLNL's) High-Speed Microphotographic Laboratory provides a facility for studying rapidly evolving microstructures. In particular, the exploding of wires and foils and their interactions with high explosives are of particular interest. The facility combines high-speed electronic framing and streak cameras with the appropriate specialized optics, spectrographs, and laser illumination to record events with a few nanoseconds and micrometers of temporal and spatial resolutions, respectively. Velocity and spectral data are also used to compute pressures with better than kilobar resolution.
