Abstract
Non-destructive monitoring of laser transmission welding of polymers is a crucial topic in different production areas. Process parameter deviation may result in product failure. Current monitoring often relies on post process or inline methods which are not able to give a qualitative process feedback. Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) enables tomographic measurements of transparent material structures with a few microns resolution. It provides high accuracy for monitoring and quality assurance of pre, inline and post process situations.
