Experimental Study of Photon-Phonon Interactions in an Explosive by Laser Probe Mass SpectrographyJ.F. Eloy and A. Delpuech
Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique
We have shown in a series of previous papers the part of the molecular electronic structure played in the decomposition process of an explosive submitted to a shock wave. This part is important especially as regards energy transfer properties. This work is intented to investigate the process of these transfers by the study of photon-phonon interactions in this type of material. The experimental technique used for this purpose is laser probe mass spectrography. The first tested explosives are RDX and HMX studied in the shape of single crystals.
