Abstract

Transmission and reflection spectroscopy in the Terahertz (THz) range (∼ 3 to 0.1 mm) is potentially useful for the detection of explosives and biological agents. This paper describes the use of THz time domain spectroscopy (TDS) applied in transmission to the 1,3,5 trinitro-s-triazine (RDX), C4, Amonium Nitrate, etc. Samples were also subjected to Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy over the same range for comparison. General agreement confirms the absorption features found. The nature of THz technology applied in the noninvasive detection of such material is discussed.
