Acoustics and piezoelectricity

The A1P facilities, localized in INSA Blois allow to perform vibrational measurements to determin the energy recovery of new piezoelectric materials. Equipment also allows to explore materials with acoustic microscopy, perform electrical and/or mechanical measurments on developing devices. The platform also performs ultrasonic non-destructive testing.
