Abstract : Fourier transform Raman (FTR) spectroscopy employing near infrared (NIR) laser radiation at 9,394.5/cm is used to characterize neat energetic materials and several propellant formulations. Raman spectra are reported over the region from 100/cm to 3,000/cm, relative to the Rayleigh line. The technique is extended to the study of crystalline components of propellant formulations during heating. The utility of the technique in determining the principal crystalline ingredient in a propellant formulation is demonstrated. jg p3
