Description

Thin film coatings are used to protect metal alloys from oxidation. To be effective they must have adequate thickness and be well bonded to the metal substrate. This is especially important for metals subject to high temperatures or to highly oxidizing environments. As a consequence, there is a need for a non-destructive method for evaluating coating thickness, bonding, and other coating properties.
