Abstract
Compton scattering and photoelectric absorption of gamma rays are used as indicators of material electron density and mean atomic number, respectively. These indicators are shown to be adequate for discriminating explosive materials from other organic or polymer materials of similar mass densities. A transmission-scattering map is shown, experimentally and by Monte Carlo simulation, to provide a useful and simple indicator for the presence or absence of explosives.
