Abstract : This State-of-the-Art Review contains information on both the fundamental science and general applications of microwave nondestructive evaluation. Chapter contents include: introductory background on microwave and millimeter wave spectra, definition and scope of microwave NDE, dielectric properties of materials, material characterization using microwaves, thickness and disbond measurements, microwave techniques for surface cracks, defect detection in thick composites, and concluding remarks and the future of microwave NDE. The publication contains 553 references to microwave NDE-related papers in the public literature.
