Fraunhofer IWS Transfers Laser-based Sound Analysis of Surfaces into Industrial Practice with “LAwave”

The Sound of the Perfect Coating

Press Release (Nr. 03) - Fraunhofer IWS Dresden /

Sound waves can reveal surface properties. Parameters such as surface or coating quality of components can be analyzed non-destructively using lasers and sensors. In research and some industrial laboratories, this laser-induced surface wave spectroscopy has already become an established measurement technology. With “LAwave”, the Fraunhofer Institute for Material and Beam Technology IWS in Dresden will present the second generation of a user-friendly measuring device at the International trade fair for quality assurance “Control” in April 2024, which will pave the way into industrial practice.
