25 April 1990 A Multipulsed Dynamic Diffraction Moire Interferometer
Author Affiliations +
A system capable of generating several tens of diffraction moire interferograms at rates on the order of 1 MHz is described. The interferometer consists of a specially modified, segmented ruby rod laser capable of producing a long train of 40-mJ pulses each with a width on the order of 20 to 50 ns. The interferograms are recorded on film using a high speed turbine camera capable of 2,000,000 frames per second for a total record of 80 frames. The interferometer is used in conjunction with any of several devices for impulsively loading a variety of materials so as to study dynamic material deformation, fracture, delamination, or other response to dynamic stress. This apparatus is the latest in a series of dynamic diffraction moire systems built at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory.
