A pressure driven shock tube to produce shock waves in mercury vapor was constructed and is described and figured in the report. In order to have sufficient mercury density it is necessary to heat the entire tube to 400C. It is intended to make spectroscopic studies of the essential lines of mercury, especially the 2537A line as emitted by the shock heated vapor. It is expected that the actual measurement phase of the project will commence during the coming year. Author
