Photothermal systems

Based on Photothermal Common-Path Interferometer (PCI) concept

The instrument
  • Detects the thermal effect of absorption.
  • Insensitive to scattering.
  • Has moderate 3D resolution:
    • test substrate behind the coating, interface between bonded parts
    • make 2D or 3D maps of absorption patterns
  • Can be used to monitor induced, time-dependent absorption:
    • gray tracks,
    • laser-induced transparency (bleaching),
    • initial stages of optical damage, etc.
Industrial Quad systems
  • Based on spaceous Quad enclosure design
  • Noise/vibration isolation
  • LabVIEW software
  • Extended automation of standard tests
  • Individually designed sample holders
