The Assessment of Surface Structures with an Optical Sensor
In the case of highly stressed components the structure of surface very often has an essential influence on the achievable service life. If, on the one hand, accurate matching with the material properties and stresses is required, measurement techniques are needed to describe the structure and its variations. An optical measuring process working on the scattered-light principle is suitable for use in the production line, as well. For this purpose it is necessary to meet the requirements for low weight, insusceptibility to deviations in alignment and insusceptibility to interference.
