Paper Abstract

We demonstrate the use of optical gating techniques for determining the size and location of defects in advanced ceramic materials. The subsurface region in a bearing-grade silicon nitride ceramic material is probed using an optical gate based on broadband Raman scattering. Experimental results indicate that the size and distribution of small subsurface defects can be determined.
