Description

The FAUST (Focusing Adaptive UltraSonic Tomography) system was developed at the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) to improve performances of ultrasonic non destructive testing in terms of adaptability to various control configurations and defect characterization. Unlike conventional techniques only allowing fixed focusing, this system can dynamically modify the characteristics of the ultrasonic beam. This system relies on optimized phased array transducers connected to a multi-channel acquisition system supplying amplitude and delay laws allowing to drive the ultrasonic beam.
