Description

Material characterization and testing of construction ceramics without destruction of the sample is needed to ensure the quality of ceramic products. In the most demanding applications testing of every product would be needed, therefore we are seeking a method which would be both fast and reliable. We have tested a method to characterize the defects in green state alumina where the process is based on the generation of ultrasonic waves by a focused pulse laser. The generated nanosecond scale pulse is used to measure the transit time between the generation volume and the ultrasonic detector and the time is used to calculate the relative density change.
