Chinese-born, US-based analytical and environmental chemist Sun has focused for the past decade on developing anti-terrorism detection technologies. By far the most common terrorist weapons, he says, are bombs, and he describes methods for detecting the explosive material used in them. His approach is practical, so he rarely delves into the underlying science, and keeps equations to the minimum. Treating first trace then bulk detection technologies, he discusses such topics as sampling technologies, ion mobility spectrum technology, mass spectrometry, x-ray technologies, millimeter-wave imaging, and nuclear quadrapole resonance technology.
