Non Destructive Evaluation (NDE)

Luminit R&D is developinghigh frequency, ultrasonic NDE to resolve damage-induced defects in composite energetic material.

Compression Imaging Phased Array Ultrasound Interrogator (CIPHOR)

Luminit is developing a new Compression Imaging Phased Array Ultrasound Interrogator (CIPHOR) system, based on phased array higher frequency (~20 MHz) ultrasonic NDE for characterization of the micro grain structure of the composite energetic materials. This proposed system offers the capability to deform the energetic material in situ and in real time capture the evolution of the resulting damage under mechanical/thermal insult. Its use of high frequency results in ultrasound wavelengths of ~100 ┬Ám, which in combination with super-resolution imaging techniques enables resolving the grain structure and damage-induced defects in composite energetic material.
