The Acoustics team’s activities focus on non-destructive evaluation, control and characterization by ultrasonic acoustics as well as the development of sensors and acoustic instrumentation in hostile environments.
The IES Acoustics team is structured around a backbone of expertise in the development and shaping of piezoelectric materials for the design and manufacture of ultrasound sensors
The research aims to address two main objectives:
- Extend the operating ranges of acoustic measurement instruments and methods in hostile environments, particularly for high temperatures and in radiative environments.
All these works require a mastery of the entire acquisition chain, from the electronics to the sensor, as well as a fine understanding of the propagation of ultrasonic waves to extract relevant information on the material from often disturbed signals. We have the scientific and technical skills to design ultrasonic systems, to build sensors and associated electronics, and to implement them in specific devices dedicated to the analysis of complex physical phenomena that we model.
