Abstract : A novel method is described from which estimates of the internal pressure or temperature of highly accelerated material can be made. The technique is applied to Nd-laser ablatively accelerated targets and the results compare well with target rear surface temperature measurements using time-resolved optical pyrometry. (Author)
