Title (EN) IMPROVED MID-IR LASER FOR GENERATION OF ULTRASOUND USING A CO2 LASER AND HARMONIC GENERATION
(FR) LASER INFRAROUGE MOYEN (MID-IR) AMÉLIORÉ POUR ÉMISSION D'ULTRASONS PAR LASER CO2 ET PRODUCTION D'HARMONIQUES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A mid infrared range laser source for ultrasound inspection that comprises a high energy laser coupled with one or more harmonic generation devices. The high energy laser may be a CO2 laser and tuned to emit laser light at a single wavelength. The harmonic generation devices convert the laser beam into the mid infrared range for optimal ultrasound inspection.
(FR)L'invention concerne une source laser infrarouge moyen utilisée pour l'inspection par ultrasons. Cette source laser comprend un laser de haute énergie couplé à au moins un dispositif de production d'harmoniques. Le laser de haute énergie, qui peut être un laser CO2, est accordé pour émettre une lumière laser monochromatique. Par ailleurs, les dispositifs de production d'harmoniques transforment le faisceau laser en infrarouge moyen pour optimiser l'inspection par ultrasons.
