Non destructive observation of defects in composite materials using time domain THz imaging

Abstract

Terahertz waves can penetrate opaque materials and fingerprint spectra appear as those in infrared bands. The technique is expected to be used as a new non-invasive analysis method for various materials. The authors have applied terahertz time domain spectroscopy (THz-TDS) to observe cracks of two types of fibre-reinforced polymers (FRPs) which were Kevlar… (More)
