Flame-retardant ethylene-propylene-diene copolymer (FR-EPDM) with the same additives as those used in nuclear power plants was analyzed by terahertz (THz) and infrared (IR) absorption spectroscopy, before and after the irradiation by γ-rays. As a result, it has become clear that THz spectroscopy can indicate the degradation of the FR-EPDM samples better… CONTINUE READING
