Materials characterisation service

We offer a materials characterisation service using methods in accordance with the IEC specification 63081.

Our measurements have been compared against those completed by the National Physical Laboratory UK and they were found to be in agreement with each other. We will work closely with you to determine your requirements and prepare a report for you on completion of the characterisation.

The material properties we can characterise are:

  • Insertion loss
  • Echo reduction
  • Absorption/attenuation
  • Dispersion and phase velocity
  • Acoustic impedance

For low to moderate loss materials, we can characterise the frequency dependent properties of a material in the range 200 kHz to 13 MHz. However, higher loss materials exhibit absorptions profiles that increase rapidly with frequency. As such, dynamic range limitations may restrict the highest frequency of measurement

We are happy to discuss your requirements and may be able to customise measurement processes to suit the needs of your project.
