Non-Destructive Testing comprises an ensemble of techniques utilized to meticulously examine and evaluate materials for defects or irregularities without causing impairment to their original state. It encompasses an array of methodologies – from ultrasonic and radiographic techniques to electromagnetic and visual inspections – each designed to meticulously scrutinize structural elements ranging from aircraft components to critical infrastructure, ensuring operational robustness and safety without the need for destructive interventions.

Concurrently, the emergence and maturation of nanotechnology have paved new avenues for Non-destructive Testing, ushering in an era of unprecedented precision and sensitivity. Nanotechnology, operating at the scale of nanoparticles and molecular structures, bestows an unparalleled ability to detect minuscule defects, enhancing the reliability and accuracy of NDT Methodologies.
