Abstract

The explosive decomposition of heavy metal azides (HMAs) initiated by the electric (streamer) discharge induced by a nanosecond electron beam has been experimentally studied. A physical model is proposed that describes the initiation of an electron-beam-induced HMA explosion, which involves the formation of a strong electric field in a sample and its neutralization by a supersonic anode discharge. The propagating streamer front generates hot spots in a condensed reactive substance, from which the foci of explosive decomposition are formed.
