Acoustic emission testing is one of the non-destructive techniques Optics11 AE system OptimAE can be used for. Learn more how OptimAE performed in laboratory tests against piezoelectrical acoustic sensors and what advantages it brings.
Paper by Optics11 experts Mario Sorgente, Aydin R. Zadeh together with Abdelkrim Saidoun from CETIM, “Performance Comparison Between Fiber-Optic and Piezoelectric Acoustic Emission Sensors” gives an overview of the tests conducted with OptimAE to evaluate performance of fiber optic acoustic sensors versus state-of-the-art PZT sensors.
The tests included performance comparison in:
– localization accuracy
The fiber-optic system OptimAE showed equal results to the PZT electrical system, demonstrating that OptimAE may bring the benefits of cutting-edge AE testing to extreme temperatures, high voltages, radiation, and explosive dangerous locations.
