Abstract : A variety of novel chemical diagnostics methods have been investigated and applied to practical problems of interest to the DoD. Novel sensing methods and devices have been utilized in the investigation of hydrazine vapors with both passive and active sensing devices;optoacustic detection schemes for explosive vapors;the detection of water vapor using surface acoustic wave (SAW) sensors, and the determination of the oxidative stability of novel deuterated lubricants by detection of evolved gaseous by-products.
