Shock properties of Nd2Fe14B magnet were measured in the shock pressure range of 19 ~ 78 GPa by employing the two-stage light gas gun. Hugoniot data of Nd2Fe14B with initial average density 7.35 g/cm3 are obtained by the impedance matching method. The experimental results show a linear relationship between shock velocity and mass velocity. Based on the technique of explosive-driven demagnetization, a pulsed power source has been designed. With the Φ40 mm × 20 mm × 10 mm cylindrical magnet, the maximum output voltage and current reaches respectively 125.5 volts and 862.9 A. The rise time of the front edge of output voltage is about 264 ns. On the 0.05 Ω simulative load, the net power is 37 kW. Several formulas have been deduced in order to predict some important properties of the power source.
