Paper Abstract

In 2006 an approach was developed that used chirped fiber gratings in combination with a high speed read out configuration to measure the velocity and position of shock waves after detonation of energetic materials. The first demonstrations were conducted in 2007. Extensions of this technology were made to measure pressure and temperature as well as velocity and position during burn, deflagration and detonation. This paper reviews a series of improvements that have been made by Columbia Gorge Research, LLC, Lawrence Livermore National Lab and Los Alamos National Lab in developing and improving this technology.
