Optical properties of RDX, HMX, AP, HTPB/IPDI and a catalyzed NC/NG propellant (N5) were obtained from 2.5 μm to 18 μm using FTIR transmission spectrometry. Scattering-corrected KBr pellet methodology was used for the crystalline materials. Absorption index (k) was measured directly and refractive index (n) was deduced using dispersion theory. At 10.600 μm the absorption coefficients were AP, 190 cm-1 (240 cm-1 at 10.6036 μm); HTPB/IPDI, 360 cm-1; N5, 510 cm-1; RDX, 2800 cm-1; and HMX, 5670 cm-1.
