We report on experiments to measure the shock-induced growth of sinusoidal perturbations on thick interfaces separating two gases of different densities. The results show that the growth rates are reduced as the interface thickness is increased. A model that accounts for the growth rate reduction caused by the presence of a finite density gradient on the interface is proposed and good agreement is obtained with the experimental results.
