Nowadays it is possible to detect, without any surface preparation, delaminations, disbonds, undulations, kissing bonds, crushed core and many other types of defect.
Q-800 portable shearography system
Q-810 shearography system with on hood display
In principal the technique requires two images at two different loading conditions which are automatically compared to each other.
The small levels of loading required can be applied to the object surface using either thermal, vacuum, vibration or mechanical excitation. This creates a unique surface deformation linked to the physical response of the material to the loading.
The results are available in real-time and are displayed automatically to the operator. Further image processing can be performed to customise the results for export and reporting.
The new generation of integrated systems from Dantec Dynamics GmbH include the radically enhanced Q-810 portable shearography system typically used for Quality Assurance in production and in-field inspections.
The overall system weight has been reduced which significantly helps with day-to-day handling; the system can now easily be handled by a single person and therefore the running costs have now been reduced to a minimum.
Furthermore, a new advanced feature called “Real-time Phase Image Display” is available which provides live measurement results to the operator, allowing them to make a final judgement at an early stage.
The Q-800 and Q-810 Shearography systems are now supported by the ISTRA 4D software. This software is based on the common platform for Dantec Dynamics’ products.

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.
The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
