UiB and CMR in high-tech collaboration

Students from UiB last month joined an experiment with an ultra-high-speed camera. This was a part of the troubleshooting of the Field Kelvin Probe currently under development.

Scientists at Christian Michelsen Research together with colleagues from the Max Planck Institute (Germany) are currently developing the Field Kelvin Probe to enable contactless detection of hidden corrosion in on- and off-shore installations.

The Field Kelvin Probe (FKP) is a new measuring instrument currently being developed at CMR, with funding from the Research Council of Norway as well as industrial funding. FKP technology will enable contactless detection of corrosion on bare or coated steel and even through thick metallic walls.

This complex project had help from Master students from UiB last week.  They were asked to help a CMR team to verify the integrity of FKP measurements by using high resolution high speed photography. A fine ultra-high-speed camera operated by the students allowed us to slow down the fast movement of a sensor in order to understand the problem.
