Over last two decades, the techniques of magnetically driven quasi-isentropic compression and launching high velocity flyer plates based on pulsed high current generators have being extensively used to do dynamic material experiments under extreme conditions, such as high pressure, high temperature and high strain rate. A compact pulsed power generator CQ-4 was developed to do quasi-isentropic compression experiments of materials at Institute of Fluid Physics of CAEP, which can deliver maximum peak current of about 4 MA to short-circuit loads and produce approximate 100 GPa pressure on the metallic samples. On CQ-4, several types of dynamic material experiments have being conducted for equation of states, phase transitions, constitutive relationships, micro-structure evolutions of matter under quasi-isentropic compression and shock loadings. Meanwhile the dynamic behaviors of solid plastic bonded explosives and their components have also being researched for better understanding the interaction of explosive components under stress waves and the hot spot originations and evolutions mechanism of PBX explosives under dynamic loadings. Several typical applications in dynamic material properties were shown in this paper to exhibit the capabilities of CQ-4.
