When a strong shock wave leaves a metal, flows of particles of different sizes are ejected from the wave’s free surface (shock-wave "dusting", ejecta) [1,2]. Unlike a cumulative jet, such a flow consists of separate particles having a size of a few microns to hundreds of microns. It was assumed that there are also finer particles in such a flow, but the existing techniques are not able to resolve them.

This report presents the results of experiments using SR from the colliders VEPP-3 and VEPP-4 at BINP. Precision measurement of transmitted SR (of an energy of 2 GeV on VEPP-3) was applied to exploration of microparticle flows from a free surface of various materials (copper, tin, and tantalum). Mass distributions along microjets originating from micron-sized slits were obtained. Dynamic detection of small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) of synchrotron radiation (SR) from the collider VEPP-4M (energy of 4 GeV) was implemented on the facility SYRAFEEMA (Synchrotron Radiation Facility for Exploring Energetic Materials). A technique of SAXS measurement on this facility enables detection of nanoparticles ranging in size from 4 to 200 nm. Flows of nanoparticles of about 100 nm in size from a surface of smooth foil (tin and tantalum) affected by compressed HMX were detected for the first time.
