Laue characterization of Jet Engine Turbine Blades

7th Dec, 2021

Photonic Science (PSEL) Laue System offers jet turbine blade manufacturers significant improvements for the characterization of nickel based superalloys components. The technique used is based on X-ray back reflection diffraction. Characterization of structure defects in turbine blades is the basis for determination of the overall crystalline perfections. Unlike current inclined geometry diffraction based systems, Photonic…

Insights into Laue Cameras and Single Crystal Orientation

29th Jul, 2021

Laue cameras are a core part of the Photonic Science product offering. This week, our MD Daniel Brau sat down to talk about the working principles of diffraction Laue cameras and to give some insight into what makes our Laue crystal orientation systems so special. Laue diffraction is an extremely valuable tool for investigating the…

Extended SWIR Camera Optimisation

22nd Jul, 2021

Extended SWIR cameras with responsivity from 1100nm to 2200nm, are now available with both qVGA and VGA 640×512 resolution. These cameras are used for applications where response in 2200nm is essential, for instance hyper spectral imaging where spectral reflectance exceeds the traditional 900 -1700nm spectral range. Also used for laser profiling, alignment and detection for…
