Abstract
Novel opto-electronic techniques for dynamic high pressure studies are presented: a) A thin layer of explosive powder is spread over the surface of shocked material and detonates with the shock arrival. Light is emitted and can be recorded optically with a streak camera or electrically through an optical fiber and a photomultiplier. The optical fiber can be in contact with the explosive powder or can collect the light from a distance without interfering with the recorded phenomena. b) A quartz fiberoptic placed in direct contact with a shocked surface self generates a light impulse. Coupled to a high speed solid state amplifier it can be used as an extremely simple "optical pin" and possibly as a pressure transducer.
