abstract

We report the sensing of explosive materials by using terahertz (THz-TDS) time domain spectroscopy at standoff distance. The 0.82 THz absorption peak of RDX is observed at a distance up to 30 m away from the emitter and receiver. This result supports the application of THz-TDS technique in remote sensing and detection of explosives.
