    1. Highly sensitive NQR/NMR technique for explosive detection NPD: Prof. Dr. Bekir Aktas Gebze Institute of Technology, Gebze- Kocaeli, Turkey PPD : Dr. Georgy Mozzhukhin Kazan State Power Engineering Univ., Kazan, Russian Fed. Co-Director : Prof. Dr. Kev Salikhov Zavoisky Physical-Technical Institute, Kazan, Russian Fed.

    2. Current status of technology The methods of the explosives detection are following: Trace (biosensor, fluorescent, electro-chemical, mass spectrometry, ion mobility), X-ray (transmission, backscatter, computer tomography, dual energy) Neutron (thermal neutron analysis, fast neutron analysis, neutron backscatter and etc.) Other nuclear (gamma backscatter, transmission) Electromagnetic (nuclear magnetic resonance NMR, nuclear quadrupole resonance NQR)

    3. Current status of technology - 2 The advantages of NQR: The NQR frequency is a unique (very high reliability) RF radiation is not dangerous or destructive detection of hermetically-packed explosives Simple sensor (RF coil) The problems and disadvantages of NQR: Low sensitivity, especially to low frequency explosives (<1MHz) NQR method permits to detect only crystalline samples RF interference problems the electrical (metal) shielding does not permit to detect the explosives

    6. Current status of technology - 5 The methods to improve SNR in the NQR detection: advanced techniques of the coherent accumulation of the signals in multipulse sequences the double/triple frequency and double resonance (NQR-NMR or NQR-NQR) methods, the application of novel sensors: atomic and SQUIDs magnetometers, GMR sensors and High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) resonators.

    7. The objectives of the project Higher SNR of NQR signal by application of the original multi-pulse and multi-frequency sequences to obtain steady-state precession states in pure NQR Testing of various modifications of double resonance methods to increase SNR of direct NQR detection by change of relaxation parameters of the NQR system. Testing of High-Tc superconductor elements with use of pick-up coil probes and mixed sensors to increase sensitivity of NQR detection. Research and technical design of low-field NMR technique to detect liquid illegal substances or their precursor components. The models of the detection devices will be created as well

    8. The novelty of project Two-frequency irradiation of the sample combined with multi-pulse technique (to increase the sensitivity of NQR detection) The coherent steady states excited by one (two) frequency multiple pulse period after application of two or three frequency excitation. Application of multi-pulse multi-frequency sequences during direct contact between proton and quadrupole subsystem Development of the theory of cross-relaxation processes for the system under multifrequency irradiation Testing of novel technical solutions, such as high-Tc supercon-ductors and GMR sensors GMR sensors
