Description

Laser based NDE techniques offer a potential solution to many of the NDE problems found in the applications of high performance materials and aerospace structures. Typical of these structures and materials are the ones being developed for high speed civil transport as well as the currently used structures such as found in the commercial fleet. The response of the structure to a modulated laser beam can be used to probe both its thermal and mechanical properties which are often critical to its proper performance. Anther often mentioned advantage of laser based inspections is the laser beam can be remotely scanned over the surface of the object enabling the inspection of complex geometries.
