Abstract:

Thermal wave imaging of coated samples, surface geometries of homogeneous samples, and dispersed particles in rubber samples are presented and discussed. Preliminary results of color-encoding of images are encouraging. Further photothermal infrared radiation detection studies of the coated graphite samples are recommended, along with more detailed study of numerical analysis of surface roughness applications. Preparation of rubber samples containing layer defects is also recommended.
