Laser-launched flyer plates for shock physics experiments
The TRIDENT laser was used to launch Cu, Ga, and NiTi flyers from poly(methylmethacrylate) (PMMA) substrates, coated with thin (∼micron) layers to absorb the laser energy, confine the plasma, and
Simplified laser-driven flyer plates for shock compression science.
TLDR
A simplified system of laser-driven flyer plates for shock compression science and shock spectroscopy is described, and the usefulness of this flyer plate system is demonstrated by Hugoniot equation of state measurements of a polymer film, emission Spectroscopy of a dye embedded in the polymer, and impact initiation and emission spectroscopic of a reactive material consisting of nanoscopic fuel and oxidizer particles.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that the planarity (bow and tilt) of the loading induced by a spatially shaped laser pulse is within 2-7 mrad (with an average of 4+/-1 mrad), similar to that in conventional techniques including gas gun loading.

TLDR
This work accelerates charged micron and submicron-sized dust particles to speeds up to 80 km s(-1) in the laboratory, enabling the controlled investigation of hypervelocity impact phenomena across a hitherto unobtainable range of impact parameters.
Melt-driven erosion in microparticle impact
TLDR
The authors visualise for the first time the high impact of single tin microparticles on a tin substrate and show erosion of ductile metallic materials is melt-driven.
Debris/Micrometeoroid Impacts and Synergistic Effects on Spacecraft Materials
In the last 40 years, the increased space activity created a new form of space environment of hypervelocity objects—space debris—that have no functional use. The space debris, together with naturally
Material damage in space from microparticle impact
A large variety of materials have now been recovered from long term exposure to the space environment. The authors have investigated samples which have spent several years in space on various
