Operating in a high growth market valued at £35 billion, Novosound has developed a unique thin film core material which eliminates limitations associated with existing ultrasound sensor solutions.

Ultrasound sensors produce sound waves with frequencies above the audible range of humans which transmit through an object to measure or image internal features. Commonly known for its use in maternity wards and other hospital departments, ultrasound imaging is also extensively applied in industrial settings as a safe Non-Destructive Testing (“NDT”) technique for revealing below-surface deformities, cracks or corrosion.
