Witness wires, plates, and disks are used along with several other techniques to characterize the aerosol generated explosively from simulated Radiological Dispersal Devices at Sandia National Laboratories. The right photo shows the initial stages of the explosive dispersal of simulated RDD material in one of Sandia's tests. See article by Stephen V. Musolino and Frederick T. Harper on page 377 for more information.
