Caption: Lightning strike analysis. Laser interferometer being used to analyse the effects of an artificial lightning strike on an aircraft panel. The areas where the laser light (green) is undergoing interference show as dark and light bands on a screen (not seen), indicating the nature of the deformation experienced by the panel. The charring due to the lightning strike has been highlighted (green) by the laser light. This work is being carried out at CESI (the Italian Experimental Electrotechnical Centre), in Milan, Italy. Here, experiments are carried out to test the effect of artificial lightning strikes on various objects and materials. Lightning research has been carried out at CESI since 1970.
