Counterterrorist Detection Techniques of Explosives, Second Edition covers the most current techniques available for explosive detection. This completely revised volume describes the most updated research findings that will be used in the next generation of explosives detection technologies. New editors Drs. Avi Cagan and Jimmie Oxley have assembled in one volume a series of detection technologies written by an expert group of scientists. The book helps researchers to compare the advantages and disadvantages of all available methods in detecting explosives and, in effect, allows them to choose the correct instrumental screening technology according to the nature of the sample.
- Covers bulk/remote trace/contact or contact-less detection
- Describes techniques applicable to indoor (public transportation, human and freight) and outdoor (vehicle) detection
- Reviews both current techniques and those in advanced stages of development
- Provides detailed descriptions of every technique, including its principles of operation, as well as its applications in the detection of explosives
Scientists and engineers in universities, research institutes, and industry, involved in research and development of explosives detection techniques; students in analytical and forensic chemistry; enforcement agencies/personnel in the area of national security

Dr. Cagan received his B.Sc. degree in Chemical Engineering from Ben-Gurion University (Be’er Sheva, Israel) and M.Sc. in Chemical Engineering degree from the Technion, Israel Institute of Technology (Haifa, Israel) and his Ph.D. in chemistry from Arizona State University (Tempe, AZ, USA). Dr. Cagan conducted research, leading the explosives detection team, at the Biodesign Institute OF Arizona State University for 7 years. He was a research Scientist (2006–2008), an Assistant Research Professor (2008-2012). He continues his research in the Chemistry Department at New Mexico State University since then as a Research Professor and works as a Sub-contractor of the Chemistry Department of University of Rhode Island. Dr. Cagan's main activities involve applications of novel analytical techniques for the detection and analysis of hidden explosives.
