Isentropic compression of metallic samples under High Pulse Powers (HPPs) are performed at CEA-Gramat. Large strains and high strain rates are obtained under intense magnetic field-driven Laplace forces. On account on electromagnetic immunity, a dedicated Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) mainframe was designed by CEA LIST. Ring aluminum samples with crossed FBGs bonded onto the external surface were tested on the CYCLOPE HPP facility. Dynamic strain measurements were performed along with Photonic-Doppler Velocimetry (PDV). FBG strain data compare well to strain data derived from PDV displacements, leading the way to direct dynamic extensometry in the purpose of improving Magneto-Hydro-Dynamics (MHD) codes.
