Abstract:

The radiation spectra of a detonation front in nitromethane in the area of 3800-8000A were obtained on a spectrograph of average dispersion. The spectra were continuous with no lines or molecular bands. Preliminary measurements have shown that the distribution of energy in the spectrum differs from that of Planck.
