Abstract

Exploding metal films exhibit a striation phenomenon which has been previously reported [1], Studies of exploding films of aluminum on a glass substrate indicate that these striations are essentially perpendicular to the apparent current path and become visible early in the discharge as bright transverse regions from which aluminum is rapidly evaporated.
