Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We measure time-resolved absorption spectra in high-explosive detonations using an external cavity quantum cascade laser swept over the range 2050-2300 cm-1. Absorption from CO, CO2, H2O, N2O, and particulates is characterized.
