Terahertz Nondestructive Evaluation
Using terahertz for nondestructive evaluation enables inspection of layers in various materials that are challenging for other characterization methods. TeraView has carried out many industrial applications for a wide range of materials like paper, ceramics, clothes, plastics and woods that are transparent to THz waves.
Characterize the thickness and uniformity of multi-coat layers on metal and polymer automobile structures.
Perform spectroscopic analysis without any contact with valuable and delicate paintings and artefacts.
Investigate flaws, defects and buried structures in advanced composites and ceramic materials.
Unlike ultrasound, Terahertz Pulsed Imaging (TPI) can detect cracks hidden in multi-layered structures. THz light allows imaging through coatings and structures within plastics, ceramics and other polymeric and fiber composites. It can successfully identify defects and abnormalities from foreign material inclusions, disbond and delamination, mechanical impact damage, heat damage, and water or hydraulic fluid ingression.
