This paper describes an optical method for measuring shock wave velocity and plasma temperature preduced by gold wire explosion in air and the full initiation process of No.2 explosive by the gold wire explosion. The accumulation area of EBW detonator, threshold initiation phenomenon and its judgment and functional relation between real and visional detonation velocities have been investigated. The initiation mechanism of the detonator has also been put forward.
