Combined Low Coherence Interferometry/Ramen Spectroscopy for Non-destructive Characterization of High Temperature Composite Surfaces and Coatings

Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) has been awarded a research program from the U.S. Air Force, Wright-Patterson AFB, to develop a high throughput, non-destructive technology for characterizing the surface and the coatings of high temperature ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) used for hypersonic applications. At velocities above Mach 5, CMCs are exposed to high heat flux and wind shear and thus special post-manufacturing coatings are required to protect them from oxidation and ablation.
