Abstract : This report describes recent progress in Naval Research Laboratory's research involving the application of advanced spectroscopies to the study of energetic materials. The goal of this initial spectroscopic studies are to provide the appropriate species identification protocols suitable for the study of fast energetic reactions stimulated by light, heat, and/or shock. One of the major objectives of this Special Focus Program is to identify and characterize the important initial stages of energetic reactions as a function of initiation mode. In order to do this, techniques must be developed to observe the critical chemical fragments in the required time scales (e.g. 10-11 sec) and to elucidate the kinetics. Using these data attempts will be made to modify and control the course of the observed energetic reactions.
