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.
