Nuclear pipe leakage is the major problem in nuclear plants operation1.

Nondestructive test of nuclear pipes in situ under high level radiation is the one of the challenging projects in nuclear engineering. The high level nuclear radiation is dangerous for human and traditional NDT methods of nuclear pipe monitoring in real time in situ make them practically impossible2.

Proposed advanced laser sensor and technology which allow to detect corrosion, mechanical stress and defects which can prevent nuclear fuel failure caused by mechanical and physical-chemical aspects of nuclear reactor components under high level nuclear radiation.

Sensor operated remotely by laser light and does not require electrical wires for connection with electrical sources.

Advantages of proposed technology: NDT–nondestructive test, contactless, wireless, remote, real time operation under high level of nuclear radiation are discussed and demonstrated.
