The project is devoted to the development of novel techniques for non-contact and non-destructive characterization of material properties of a wide class of nanodimensional and nanostructured materials, including diffusively scattering nano-sized films, ultra-thin coatings, graphene oxides, graphene papers, and MEMS/NEMS elements. The technique proposed in the project is based on laser-induced photo-acoustics and adaptive interferometry using two-wave mixing in photorefractive crystals. The principle of organization as well as prototypes of such inspection systems will be developed in the course of this project.
