Understanding Heterogeneity of Energetic Materials
R1-C1

Download Project Report (Phase 2, Year 3)

Project Description

The fundamental properties of energetic materials are determined by their chemical composition and the structure of the materials. We seek to determine, using advanced analytical tools, methods which can elucidate how the structure influences the fundamental properties of energetic materials. Core funding for this project ends in Year 3 per the outcome of the Biennial Review process. Currently funded students will be supported via the ALERT Science and Engineering Workforce Development Program.

Detection of trace quantities of explosives in the gas phase is a pressing societal issue, of special importance to homeland security and a significant challenge to analytical chemistry.
