[1] Optical emission of MgSiO3 glass, enstatite, olivine, and quartz under shock wave
compression was investigated with optical pyrometry at discrete wavelengths ranging
from visible to near infrared. We develop a new analysis of optical emission that does not
require a gray body assumption. Instead, at each wavelength, the optical linear absorption
coefficients (a) and blackbody spectral radiances (Llb) of shocked and unshocked
materials were obtained by nonlinear fitting to the time-resolved radiance from the target
assembly. The absorption spectra of unshocked samples corresponding to the measured
