Phased array ultrasonic testing (PAUT) is now a widely accepted and frequently mandated method of inspection. It can be used to either enhance existing ultrasonic capability, or as a replacement for radiography.
PAUT is a powerful but complex tool and there are no shortcut solutions to ensuring its competent use. Upskilling from conventional ultrasonic to become an ISO 9712 certified PAUT Level 2 Technician, requires 100+ training hours and months of experience. Not only is this time consuming, but also

Researchers at The University of Alabama designed and made a material that
manipulates the speed of light in a new, more effective way than previous
methods, according to findings recently published in Scientific Reports by
the Nature Publishing Group.
The research by two professors and three grad students in the UA College of
Engineering could help in creating next-generation optical networks and
sensors that rely on variances in the speed of light.
"Slow light will lead to the development

Gamex 5.0 is the latest version of the popular program for industrial radiography carried out with gamma-ray sources. Its main functions are organized around planning and designing of radiographic techniques in line with requirements of major, internationally recognized radiographic standards (ASME V, Article 2 and EN 444/EN 1435). In addition to the features well known from the previous versions, such as calculation of exposure times, sources activities and received doses, the 5.0 version brings in several
