Laser ultrasonics is a non-contact,
non-destructive technique for performing
ultrasonic evaluation on components and structures in
environments where conventional transducer-based
techniques are not an option. Laser ultrasonics
can acquire data on parts at high temperature
(1100º C) and moving at high speed (5 m/s). Its
high bandwidth (100 MHz) allows accurate
measurement of depth and thickness. The small
size of the laser spots on the target (100 um)
allows interrogation of curved surfaces and
confined spaces. Rapid area inspection is
enabled through scanning of the optical beams.
All types of materials, including ceramics,
metals, glass, semiconductors and composites can
Laser ultrasonics has broad applications for
in-line process monitoring, post-process
evaluation and in-service inspection. In-line
monitoring enables measurements early in the
production process, thereby allowing feedback
control of the process.
