Microwave Technology provides reliable measurement on dielectric and non-conducting materials such as CFRP. It offers opportunities to simultaneously evaluate the thicknesses of multiple coating layers with micrometer precision.
A microwave sensor typically utilises electromagnetic radiation and extends microwave from the transmitter which radiates into the device under test. The reflected signal is separated from the transmitted signal transferred to the receiver, and there evaluated with respect to magnitude and phase.
The Microwave sensing technology has been highly adapted in both metallic and non-metallic materials as microwaves can freely penetrate these materials.
