Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

There are a diverse range of sensing technologies used in non-destructive evaluation (NDE) applications. Broadly these include ultrasonic, electromagnetic, radiographic, optical and thermal sensors. There is a drive to improve key aspects of the sensor technology that are particularly important to NDE: improved resolution and discrimination of defect types; increased speed of measurement and reduction in data; as well as the measurement of new physical phenomena. As well as the enhancement of existing technologies there is also significant interest in the use of new sensing technologies. As NDE is inherently and applied subject there is often a significant flow of ideas from the physics of the sensors, though the engineering of robust and stable devices, to demonstrations of use of new sensor technology on real applications. This special issue seeks to gather contributions from across the spectrum of sensing technologies used for NDE. A secondary aim is to represent all stages of the sensor development cycle; from the fundamentals of sensor technology to novel applications.
