Electric Field Imaging

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

NDE historically has focused technology development in propagating wave phenomena with little attention to the field of electrostatics and emanating electric fields. This work is intended to bring electrostatic imaging to the forefront of new inspection technologies, and new technologies in general.  The specific goals are to specify the electric potential and electric field including the electric field spatial components emanating from, to, and throughout volumes containing objects or in free space. ObjectivesDevelopment of new inspection technology for quantitative evaluating integrity of wire insulation, structural components, dielectric properties, electrostatic charge (ESD), locating and characterizing hidden objects, remote monitoring and characterization of human electrochemical activities. BackgroundNDE historically has focused technology development in propagating wave phenomena, such as, X-ray, N-Ray, ultrasonic, microwave, thermal, terahertz, and eddy current with little attention to the field of electrostatics and emanating electric fields.  This work is intended to bring electrostatic imaging to the forefront of new inspection technologies, and new technologies in general.  The specific goals are to specify the electric potential and electric field including the electric field spatial components emanating from, to, and throughout volumes containing objects or in free space.This work will be based on the original electric field sensor (e-Sensor) work disclosed by Generazio (2002). Current efforts have been focused on understanding the e-Sensor sensitivity and understanding the environment in which the e-Sensor is responding to.  CustomersNASA Programs, ESD mitigation programs, astronaut health monitoring, military, public transportation safety, medical community, and computer technology developers. MilestonesFY16:  Design 2D e-Sensor array and establish calibration protocolsFY17:  Test array for imaging electronic& structural componentsFY18:  Document capability of 2D array Project ManagerEdward R.
