The measurement of the temporal profile of the pressure in a shock wave propagating underwater and interacting with a nearby metal plate is presented. Pressures are deduced from the time-resolved fluorescence of a submillimeter ruby crystal mounted on an optical fiber tip. The measured pressures agree with finite-element code predictions, which model the production and propagation of the shock wave. These measurements are useful to evaluate shock-induced phenomena that are strongly dependent on the temporal profile of a shock wave, in small-scale testing, and in substantiating finite-element code predictions. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
