Abstract

Experimental results of a discharge employing Cu wire in microsecond and sub-microsecond time scale are presented. The experimental data obtained included electrical measurements and optical observations from which information about the dynamics of the water tamper was extrapolated. Temperature was measured basing on the black body assumption. Explosion parameters obtained in microsecond and sub-microsecond discharge are shown and some scaling laws are proposed.
