Caption: Lightning strike analysis. Laser interferometer being used to analyse the effects of artificial lightning strikes on two aircraft panels. One of the panels is being analysed (centre background), with the results shown on the screen at left. The areas where the laser light undergoes interference show as dark and light bands, indicating the nature of the deformation experienced by the panel. The other panel (at right) is being held by one of the researchers. For a close-up of the panels, see E180/540. This work is being carried out at CESI (Italian Experimental Electrotechnical Centre), in Milan, Italy. Lightning research has been carried out at CESI since 1970.
