Synchrotron and Neutron Users' Group  




Characterizing Industrial Materials

Synchrotron radiation is used to analuze residual stresses in materials, which contributes to understanding of lifetime and performance of gas and steam turbines and sircraft engines.


residual stress

This graph shows the non-destructive analysis of residual stress distribution below the surface of a material.

GE is also developing novel classes of ceramics with improved performance for lighting, medical imaging, and homeland security applications, using both neutron and synchrotron techniques.
