A big step forward for INQUIFOR in Ramanex project

During the last week, INQUIFOR took a big step forward on its RAMANEX european project. This project is focused on new identification methods of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and post-blast residues by Raman spectroscopy. Thanks to TEDAX group of the Spanish Civil Guard, we were able to make some controlled explosions to analyze post-blast residues, with explosives frequently used to make IEDs

On each explosion, we put some matrices (glass, paper, rubber, steel, etc.) in triplicate on different positions to study how post-blast residues are stuck on each surface, for its later Raman analysis.

Now, it is time to analyze all these residues, almost 300 samples from different materials, to study results and obtain strong and reliable conclusions.
