For the detection and characterization of delaminations, a non-destructive testing system for composite (CFRP) aircraft structures can use X-rays. However, this technique is slow and expensive. It is therefore only associated with the use of other means – for example ultrasound and infrared – that it can prove to be effective. The basic project idea consists of using new absorption materials in a sensor with direct conversion mode to make X-ray detection more advantageous. Demonstration of the effectiveness of this new sensor for non-destructive testing will make it possible to envisage the creation of a fast, low-cost dual detection system.

The feasibility study that we propose to carry out consists of various tests and characterizations on composite elements to verify the potential contribution of a new type of perovskite-based sensor for X-ray inspection of composite parts.
