Description

There is a need to nondestructively evaluate coatings on metal alloys that must endure high-temperature or highly oxidizing environments, such as for aircraft turbine blades. Such coatings are opaque and of the order of 25 μm in thickness. Characteristics of interest include the uniformity and thickness of the coating, which must be sufficient to protect the substrate from oxidation at high temperatures.
