Non Destructive Testing (NDT) is a broad category of measurement techniques used in various technology and science industry for the purpose to test the properties of an object, component or structure without causing damage to it. This technique also helps in quality improvement and cost reduction in the process of various industrial process. Engineers, technologists and technicians engaged in various development activities can utilize this technique while developing products. In fact, this technique is increasingly used by engineers, technicians and technologists engaged in various manufacturing processes to determine the nature and performance characteristics of materials being used in that particular process.

In non-destructive testing methods, numerous types of experiments are used to check the properties and consistency of an object under controlled conditions. Some of these instruments used in this process are: Scanning Acoustic Microscopy (SAM), Nondestructive Testing (NT) and Ultrasonic Inspection (UT). Amongst all the categories of these instruments, scanning acoustic microscope (SAM) performs better than other two instruments. The reason behind this fact is that it possesses sufficient sensitivity to detect the smallest irregularities in a material to help in quality assurance and cost reduction in the industrial process.
On the other hand, ultrasound inspection instrument performed in the category of non-destructive testing provides better image resolution than the SAM instrument. It has higher sensitivity to detect minute defects in materials and is preferred to perform optical inspection tasks. Moreover, the reliability of this instrument is very high. Since both of these instruments are capable of detecting minute irregularities in materials through their detectors they are widely used in all types of industries including manufacturing, scientific research, aerospace, power generation, oil & gas, petrochemical, water treatment and manufacturing sector among others.
