Raman Microspectroscopy of Some High Explosives, Revisited



E S. Etz, S V. Roberson, J Greg Gillen


Current NIST research is discussed on the characterization by micro-Raman spectroscopy of several high explosives (HES). The RamanSpectra are evaluated relative to the thermal decomposition of the HES to explain the reactions that produce secondary ion formation in SIMS measurements.
