Experimental studies and simulations of shock-compressed silicon

Abstract:

The response of silicon to shock-compression has been an area of active research for decades. However, despite considerable improvements in both experimental techniques and computer simulations, the behaviour has not been unanimously constrained. This work introduces a new Lagrangian Elastic code which aims to approach the modelling of solids from a different direction to traditional hydrodynamics codes. We present data from a white-light Laue diffraction experiment, which along with molec...
