Explosive-type high-temperature radiator for photometry

  • E. G. Popov

The use of an amplitude-stable powerful shock wave in a gas has been proposed as a high-temperature standard of a black body radiator. In order to produce these waves, an explosive charge with a cumulative channel is used. The emission from such a source has been investigated over a wide range of the spectrum including the quartz ultraviolet, visible, and infrared sections.
