A two-stage light-gun has been installed at the NIRIM in order to investigate the high pressure behavior of materials. For operation and safety test, we used helium and carried out performance test shots. Piston velocity in the pump tube and projectile velocity during free flight are measured by means of gas-pressure profile records at fixed locations and x-ray beam cutting method, respectively.
