Table-top laser-driven shock loading device was developed to make real time measurement of stress and particle velocity histories during shock loading. Use of a shock cell enables us to launch any-type of mini-flyer with the specified speed by controlling the laser power. Since the VISAR system is equipped with the present shock loading device, Hugoniot data can be obtained by the conventional set-up, where the target material is sandwiched by the mini-flyer and the window material. Accuracy in measurement is discussed for copper and PMMA Hugoniots.
