CT Scanner to Check Aircraft Components
Nov 2006
Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. of Tustin, Calif. said its Aquilion LB computed tomography (CT) scanner will by used to help ensure the reliability of aircraft parts as part of Lockheed Martin's nondestructive testing program in Palmdale. The scanner has a large-bore opening (90 cm) that enables it to capture images of larger objects in one scan, and its 70-cm acquired true field-of-view (FOV) eliminates the need to scan items in pieces and reassemble images for review, the company said.

The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
