To develop a more efficient method of determining pressure dependent material response to shock loading, we used the spatial energy distribution of a shock generating laser beam to create a range of nearly one-dimensional stresses in a single laser shot. Ultrafast dynamic ellipsometry was used to measure the Hugoniot and shocked refractive index of cyclohexane subject to this shock loading.

    Strongly radiative shocks are characterized by an ionization front induced by the shock wave. The role played together by opacity and geometry is critical for the physics of these shock waves. Moreover, radiation is an obvious way of probing these shock waves, either by self-emission or by probe...
