Shock temperature measurements via optical pyrometry are being conducted on <100> single-crystal MgO preheated beftire compression to 1905-1924 K. Planar shocks were generated by impacting hot Mo(driver plate)-MgO targets with Mo or Ta flyers launched by the Caltech two-stage light-gas gun up to 6.6 km/s. Quasi-brightness temperature was measured with 2-3% uncertainty by a 6-channel optical pyrometer with 3 ns time resolution, over 500-900 nm spectral range.
