The Photomechanics laboratory at Lehigh University was started by Dr. Arkady Voloshin in 1984. The main purpose of the lab is development and application of the modern optical methods in experimental mechanics. The laboratory has several optical systems capable to analyze a wide variety of problems utilizing principles of photoelasticity, classical moiré, moiré interferometry, fiber optic sensors and image processing and analysis.
- effect of the coatings on the stresses in die
- residual stresses and warpage due to the manufacturing of the microelectronics package
- stresses due to the die-attach procedure
