6. A Computational and Experimental Investigation of Thermal Desorption and Vapor Sampling in an Explosive Trace Detector
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/30/2011
Authors: Matthew E Staymates, Wayne Smith, Eric S Windsor
Abstract: Swipe-based explosive trace detectors rely on thermal desorption to vaporize explosive particles collected on a swipe. The vaporized material is carried by air flows from the desorption unit to the inlet of the chemical analyzer, typically an ion mo ...
