Interface imprinting by a rippled shock was studied using a laser hydrodynamics experiment. A planar shock was perturbed at Cu-polimide interface, resulting in an oscillating shock that imprinted a perturbation at CH(Br)-foam interface. Instability growth with opposite phases at the two interfaces was produced by chosen thickness of the second layer.
