Reflection spectra of pure explosive materials and their simulants were measured in transmission and reflection by means of time domain spectroscopy in the range 0.1–3 THz. Spectra measured in two reflection configurations:
specular with incident angle equal to 45 degrees and stand-off with close to normal incidence and distance 30 and 40 cm. to a sample.

Spectra were acquired using commercial time domain spectroscopy (TDS) setup from TeraView (TPS Spectra 3000) with appropriate accessories in atmosphere with humidity less than 1%.
