Optical absorption spectroscopy in optically dense detonation products

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


Recent measurements of absorption of atomic and molecular species in optically thick fireballs generated by detonation of high explosives are presented. Tunable diode lasers, pulsed dye lasers, and broadband sources are used to probe UV and visible regions for critical intermediate species.
