Miniature shock tube for laser driven shocks


We describe in this paper the design of a miniature shock tube (smaller than 1 cm3) that can be placed in a vacuum vessel and allows transverse optical probing and longitudinal backside XUV emission spectroscopy. Typical application is the study of laser launched radiative shocks, in the framework of what is called "laboratory Astrophysics".
