Tourmaline Pressure Bar
This unique non-resonant sensor is designed for instantaneous, reflected (face-on) shock wave pressure measurements in dry environments. A shock wave pressure impacting the very thin tourmaline crystal which operates into a silver alloyed “pressure bar”, eliminates sensor structure response. The sensor has a 0.2-microsecond rise time. The sensor diaphragm end is coated with a conductive silver epoxy.
