The Emergence of Nonlinear Optics in the Factory
David M. Pepper
Nonlinear optical techniques may provide the competitive edge for quality control and enhanced manufacturability in the ever-challenging industrial arena. To this end, Pepper highlights in-process inspection of industrial components using laser ultrasonics with adaptive photodetectors, real-time pattern recognition and classification, and compensated fiber-based systems for high-brightness, high-average power laser beam delivery systems for material processing.
