Title

Conductivity of Explosively Shocked Potassium Chloride

Abstract

Results of experimental investigations of the electrical conductivity of explosively shocked polycrystalline and single crystal potassium chloride samples are presented. KCl polycrystalline samples (diameter D = 33.0 mm and thickness h = 10.0 mm) and KCl single crystals oriented in the <100> direction (D = 38.0 mm and h = 6.0 mm) were loaded by shock waves generated from high explosives. It follows from the experimental results that the resistance of KCl single crystals is reduced to 10ˉ⁴ ¿·cm due to the explosive shock compression. ©2009 IEEE.
