Iowa State University’s microwave and millimeter wave nondestructive evaluation laboratory, directed by Reza Zoughi at Center for Nondestructive Evaluation (CNDE), will expand its capabilities through a new partnership with NASA.
Through a Space Act Agreement (SAA), NASA Marshal Space Flight Center (MSFC) will loan a microwave/millimeter wave performance network analyzer that makes possible measurements up to 325 GHz, significantly improving this laboratory’s range of high-frequency testing capabilities.
Laser Technology Inc. (LTI) has donated a LTI-2100 Digital Shearography Camera and its accessories to Iowa State University’s Center for Nondestructive Evaluation (CNDE).
The gift will expand CNDE’s research and education capabilities into shearography, a laser interferometric imaging NDE technique for detecting and measuring a range of defects on metallic and composite materials.
Stephen Holland, associate professor of aerospace engineering and associate director of Iowa State’s Center for Nondestructive Evaluation, has been named a Fellow of the American Society for Nondestructive Testing (ASNT) class of 2021. Since joining Iowa State in 2006, Holland has made significant contributions to multiple aerospace and NDE research and teaching innovations.
Katelyn Brinker, graduate research assistant with the Center for Nondestructive Evaluation (CNDE) and co-chair of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Eta Kappa Nu (IEEE-HKN) Public Relations and Communications Committee, has been named a recipient of a Grand Apex Award.
