Our focus is on non-contact measurements with emphasis on optical and laser measurements. The applications are covering a very broad field that can be found in scientific and fundamental metrology, within applied technical or industrial fields and legal and forensic applications. Optical and laser measurements can generally be divided into three basic activities; * definition of internationally accepted units of measurement * realization of these units of measurement in practice * application of chains of traceability linking to reference standards

Polytec´s wide range of laser vibrometers are acknowledged as gold-standard for non-contact vibration measurement. Laser-Doppler vibrometers analyze samples of different sizes, from entire car bodies, large aerospace parts over engines and actuators to micron-sized MEMS or delicate HDD components.
The instruments are high-precision and non-contact tools for characterizing the surface topography in 3D. The highlights are: Areal measurement with nanometer (nm) vertical resolution, large field-of-view (FOV) for large samples, measuring hard-to-reach areas like holes, fast measurement for short cycle times. TopMap systems measures parameters like step-height, waviness, flatness, parallelism, as well as roughness
Digital Image Correlation (DIC) is a 3D full-field, non-contact optical technique to measure contour, deformation, vibration and strain on almost any material.
The technique can be used with many tests including tensile, torsion, bending and combined loading for both static and dynamic applications.
It is based on grey value digital images, that can determine the contour and the displacements of an object under load in three dimensions.
The DIC method can be applied from very small (micro) to large testing areas – and the results are readily comparable with FEA results or strain gauges.
Instrumentation for turbulence and mixing studies, including non-intrusive techniques as well as solutions based on physical sensors.
Our Phase Doppler Anemometry (PDA) systems measure the size, velocity and concentration of spherical particles, droplets, or bubbles suspended in gaseous or liquid flows. The DynamicStudio Shadow Sizer measures size, shape and velocity of particles using backlighting and image analysis software.
