Experimental results on a generation of strong shocks in a compact pulse power device are reported. To make a strong and plain shock wave, electrodes are tapered and an acrylic guiding tube is located on the top of the electrodes. It drives a quasi-one-dimensional strong shock in the guiding tube. When the front speed is more than the critical speed Drad, an interesting structure is confirmed at the shock front, which indicate a phenomenon proceeded by the radiative transport.
