Abstract
In this paper we report on measurement of spectra of commonly applied explosives, some materials which can be used for manufacture of explosive and THz simulants of explosives in transmission mode. Substances were prepared as pellets, and the measurements were performed using the Time Domain Spectroscopy system in the range 0.1-3.0 THz.

From the paper
“... For Time Domain Spectroscopy measurement, Teraview TPS 3000 unit in transmission
configuration was used...”
