Improving the quality of composites

Composite industry | Dutch Terahertz

The application possibilities of composites are tremendous. On critical applications serious testing is needed. Terahertz inspection provides cutting edge possibilities and non destructive testing.

The team proved that TeraHertz imaging has unique advantage, in comparison with conventional NDT techniques for detection the internal defects, particular, in non-conducting composite materials, such as glass fiber, epoxy resin, aramid fibre, honeycomb, Rohacell, and poly-urethane foam, that are often used in aerospace, marine, medical and construction industry. This technology will, for instance, enable FMCW radar, time-domain reflectometry, spectroscopic and phase sensitive three-dimensional imaging at THz frequencies.
