Abstract : The purpose of the paper is to outline experimental techniques used for studies of equilibrium and non-equilibrium radiative properties of high temperature gases produced in a shock tube. Because of the relatively high temperatures of interest, the UV contribution, extending into the vacuum U V region of the spectrum, constitutes a large portion of the total radiation. For this reason a new technique of measuring this radiation was developed and is described in detail. (Author)
