Abstract:

Shock heating techniques were developed and used to cause vaporization in porous iron samples. The effects of iron porosity, explosive configuration and type, and energy coupling techniques were investigated. The overall goal is to cause sufficient vaporization such that dense clouds of Fe atoms can be generated.
