International Symposium on

Optical Coherence Tomography for Non-Destructive Testing

13th to 14th February 2013, Linz, Austria


Optical coherence tomography (OCT) applications in the field of non-destructive testing (NDT) have grown immensely over the past few years. We are pleased to announce the First International Symposium on OCT4NDT!

The symposium is intended as a get-together for people working in this field and aims at initiating new ideas and projects. To make this event a success we kindly invite you to submit an abstract for an oral or poster presentation.



The final program can be downloaded here!




The Symposium will be held at the "Uni-Center" of the Johannes Kepler University Linz, Altenberger Straße 69, 4040 Linz



Organizer and Host:
RECENDT - Research Center for Non-Destructive Testing GmbH
Science Park 2 / 2nd floor
Altenberger Straße 69
4040 Linz, Austria


Topics that will be covered in the symposium include:

  • OCT applications in:
    → non-destructive testing
    → quality control
    → device characterization
    → material investigations

    e.g. for
    → characterization of polymers (foils, organic solar cells, GRP, ...)
    → pharmaceutical applications
    → detection of forgery
    → investigation of artwork
    → and many more industrial applications    

  • Instrumentation and algorithms:
    → system design
    →  novel and innovative light sources
    →  fiber technology
    →  probe design
    →  spectrometers
    →  data analysis
    →  signal processing
    →  system integration and automation
    →  in-line applications

  • Advanced techniques:
    polarization-sensitive OCT
    →  Doppler OCT
    →  spectroscopic OCT
    →  multi-modal techniques (e.g. combination with photoacoustic imaging, Raman, ...)
