Lamb wave propagation in monocrystalline silicon wafers

Article English OPEN
Fromme, P.; Pizzolato, M.; Robyr, J-L; Masserey, B.;

Monocrystalline silicon wafers are widely used in the photovoltaic industry for solar panels with high conversion efficiency. Guided ultrasonic waves offer the potential to efficiently detect micro-cracks in the thin wafers. Previous studies of ultrasonic wave propagati... View more
