The results of pyrometric measurements performed at the interface of a tin target with a LiF window material are presented for stresses ranging from 38 to 55 GPa. The purpose of the study is to analyze the part of the interface in the temperature measurement by a multi-channel pyrometric device. The results show that the glue used at the tin/LiF interface remains transparent under shock. The values of temperature measured at the tin/LiF interface are consistent with the behavior of tin under shock.
