OCT – because quality is more than just skin deep

Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a scanning method that uses light to deliver a tomogram – a 3D representation of the studied object. In many ways, OCT has many attributes of a perfect inspection method: it is contactless, non-destructive, with lateral and depth resolution in the range of several microns. It is also relatively fast so it can be used not only for imaging of static objects but also dynamic processes.

We are looking forward to telling you about OCT and what we have learned using this method to gain structural information from bio-printed materials, single and multicomponent ceramic materials, and composite materials. During the seminar we want to discuss with you even more ideas on how to effectively use this flexible method in industrial environments.

The seminar is part of the online seminar series
NDT4INDUSTRY – Recent developments in advanced NDT

At the Fraunhofer IKTS site in Dresden-Klotzsche our focus is on developing advanced non-destructive testing solutions for ceramics and many other materials.

We are constantly working on new solutions. We would like to present some of these to you in our NDT4INDUSTRY online seminar series.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
