In shock wave equation‐of‐state experiments employing inclined mirror techniques, limited aperture light sources such as the xenon flash lamp are generally more convenient to use than extended light sources employing explosives, but can create alignment problems when mirror inclination angles are large. These problems can be solved by employing a wedge‐shaped inclined mirror in place of a flat one.
