The Advances in magnetically driven quasi-isentropic compression experiments (ICEs) at Institute of Fluid Physics of China Academy of Engineering Physics are introduced including the techniques, data processing methods and some typical application in dynamics of materials. Two apparatuses of CQ-1.5 and CQ-4 based on compact capacitor banks are described, which are used to do quasi-isentropic compression experiments and launch high velocity flyer plates. And some work of data processing methods of quasi-isentropic compression experiments is also presented in this topic. Finally, some applications of our generators in quasi-isentropic compression experiments of material dynamics are introduced, such as the experimental compression isentropes, phase transition, spallation of metals and elasto-plastic transition.
