Paper Abstract

This paper presents some potentially interesting aspects of spectroscopic transmission measurements of explosive materials in Far-Infrared (Terahertz) range: preparation of the samples, influence of covering by clothes and influence of phlegmatization of explosives (addition an agent to an explosive material to stabilize or desensitize it). Moreover, two commonly used techniques - Far Infrared Fourier Spectroscopy and Time Domain Spectroscopy are presented and compared. We also shown and compared spectra of materials obtained in two Time Domain Spectroscopy reflection configurations: specular (45° incident angle) and stand-off with distance 30 and 40 cm to a sample.
