Explosives Detector of Siberian Scientists is Ready to Work in Airports and Train Stations


The latest development of Siberian scientists – the device that allows at the distance to detect traces of explosives in the smallest concentrations, has been tested in real conditions and is technologically ready for implementation at airports and train stations.

The operation principle is that a special excimer laser (a type of ultraviolet gas laser) with a very narrow band of radiation scans the surface of the object and a few cubic meters of space around it, revealing particles of explosives, RIA Novosti reported.

“Through the efforts of several of our institutions … the equipment was developed, which allows to determine the nanoscopic traces of explosives. This equipment has been tested in real conditions at the station in Tomsk. And I must say that this instrument has no foreign counterparts,” the deputy chairman of the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences Mikhail Epov said on Tuesday.
