Author(s) from Durham


The design of an optical polarimetric imaging system, aimed to detect cracks or structural defects on the surface of rotating aircraft engine shafts, is presented: The experimental results, clearly indicate that high. signal-to-noise ratio signals can be obtained, so that it minimizes the use of processing techniques.
