The lab has various setups for manufacturing and testing different configurations of metamaterials.
Ultimaker 3.0 is a dual-nozzle printer for fused deposition modeling of arbitrarily complex shapes. It allows producing parts from one or two materials as well as the use of breakable or washable support material for printing intricate geometries.
Laser Doppler Vibrometer OFV-5000
The laser vibrometer OFV-5000 with a compact fiber-coupled sensor head OFV-534 from Polytec combines precise optical-based vibration measurements with the easy and rapid operation. It works completely without contact and measure vibrations of even small and lightweight components with very high accuracy.
The laser engraving machine is an electro-mechanical device capable of engraving and cutting different materials (such as wood, MDF, acrylic, cardboard, and leather etc.) with high precision via computer programming.
The hybridNETBOX DN2.80/81x system consists of a Digitizer and an AWG that can work in sync or independently. It allows simultaneous signal generation and data acquisition for stimulus-response tests, ATE applications, MIMO applications, or closed-loop applications. Used independently, the digitizer can acquire test data in the field and the AWG can replay this test data in the lab.
The Olympus contact transducers are single-element special transducers intended to excite the test specimen within a particular frequency range. They can be used to test a wide variety of materials for transmission tests, perform material characterization, and inspect a wide variety of metallic and non-metallic components.
Prepolarized microphones ICP® (Class 1)
PCB Prepolarized ICP® microphones can accurately measure the slightest of acoustic pressure fluctuations. They are suitable for acoustic measurements within the normal human hearing range and beyond.
Multiple array microphones with their excellent phase characteristics can be combined with the appropriate software to effectively map acoustic energy flow.
Current Availability: Array microphones, Free-field microphone and Pressure field microphone
