An experiment with Al, Cu and Ni exploding foils was carried out at a current density of (0.5-1) ×108 A/cm2 through the 6-μm foil with a current density rate of about (0.5-1) ×108 A/cm2•s. To record the metal foil effervescence during the foil explosions, a two-frame radiographic system was used. It was shown that the duration of the explosion resistive phase was considerably lower than the metal boiling time. The foil energy deposition is equal to 30-70% of the sublimation energy.
