Proc. SPIE. 6733, International Conference on Lasers, Applications, and Technologies 2007: Environmental Monitoring and Ecological Applications; Optical Sensors in Biological, Chemical, and Engineering Technologies; and Femtosecond Laser Pulse Filamentation
The technical devices of explosives trace detection are discussed in this work. The attenuated total reflection
method (ATR) is considered for detection of explosives traces on different things (documents, clothes, fingers). The
results of experiments with Fourier spectrometer and ATR attachment for explosive trace detection are presented. The
optical scheme and design of the compact testing device are discussed. The device includes the document information
scanner and at the same time - the trace detector of explosives on the document cover.
