Boosting Explosives Detection Capabilities: Vapor Detection
Added Nov 7, 2012 | Rate View top rated
A new Pacific Northwest National Laboratory-developed method provides direct, real-time detection of trace amounts of explosives such as RDX, PETN, and C-4. The method selectively ionizes a sample before passing the sample through a mass spectrometer to detect explosive vapors. The method could be used at airports to improve aviation security.
