Transport at Nanoscale Interfaces

Research Infrastructure

Ultrasonics is a non-destructive evaluation technique for research and application. It allows the localization of flaws, the determination of geometry and elastic properties

  • Imaging is done by mechanical scanning single element ultrasonic probes, or, in case of the phased array technique with an electronic steering of ultrasonic waves –  enhancing the speed of inspection
  • With air-coupling no liquid is required giving access to new fields of application (e.g. wood, water sensitive polymers, aerogels, food, paper)
  • The numerical simulation of the ultrasonic wave propagation and interaction with devices containing flaws is essential for understanding the experimental results and improving the experimental setup
