Abstract : A spectroscopic study has been made of imploding shock waves in a hemispherical chamber filled with an H2-O2-He mixture at high initial pressures. In particular, temperature measurements at the origin of the chamber were made. Specific attention was paid to the use of the device as a driver for the Implosion-Driven Hypervelocity Launcher.
