Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation
Center for Nondestructive Evaluation

Begun in 1973, the Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation (QNDE) is the premier international NDE meeting designed to provide an interface between research and early engineering through the presentation of current ideas and results focused on facilitating a rapid transfer to engineering development.

This site provides free, public access to papers presented at the annual QNDE conference between 1983 and 1999, and abstracts for papers presented at the conference since 2001.

Abstract

Recently, a powerful method of photothermal detection was reported which enabled thermal wave imaging to be carried out on micron sized structures in semiconductors [1,2]. The new method utilized the photothermally induced modulation of the sample’s surface optical reflectivity to detect thermal wave phenomena at bandwidths exceeding 10 MHz. The wide bandwidth capabilities of the method enabled very shallow structures to be analyzed in semiconducting materials because of the relationship that exists between the modulation frequency of the excitation beam and the thermal diffusion length.
