Experimental and numerical analyses of carbon tetrachloride under laser-driven shock compression
Eisuke Yamada, Kunihiko Wakabayashi, and Mitsuo Koshi


Raman spectroscopy has been applied to carbon tetrachloride under the laser-driven shock compression. Compressed area and the area that has still not been compressed coexist in the carbon tetrachloride, when the shock wave passes. Therefore, obtained Raman spectrum consists of two areas. In order to discuss the areas in detail, numerical simulation based on the compressible fluid dynamics has been applied. Although the effect of rarefaction wave is not considered, this numerical simulation provides a reasonable result for the early stage of the shock compression.
