This thesis is concerned with the development of a method to measure the temperature of a metal surface during a time interval of a few microseconds while it is being subjected to a strong shock. The temperature of a special interest is the temperature of the free surface which appears after a strong shock has been reflected from that surface. This temperature remains constant until another shock wave is reflected from the surface, except for the change caused by heat loss to the surroundings by radiation.
