Elongated conductive structures in detonation soot of high explosives†
High values of electrical conductivity are obtained at the detonation of condensed high explosives with the formula CaHbNcOd. Such values can be explained only in the framework of the contact conductivity hypothesis. In this case, the conductivity is provided by elongated highly-conductive structures which penetrate the whole space of the detonation wave. This work is devoted to the investigation of the detonation soot of high explosives with a significant carbon content in order to discover elongated structures supporting the contact conductivity hypothesis.
