    In using pulsed eddy currents to determine the thickness of cladding, it was found that the output wave as observed on the screen of a cathode-ray oscilloscope had several unusual points. These points were stationary as the probe-to-metal spacing varied, but moved vertically as the cladding thickness changed. Tests on a clad plate seemed to indicate that the points could be used to determine cladding thickness with little interference from changes in the probe-to-metal spacing. One such method involves the use of small photocells placed in front of the oscilloscope screen with the output of the photocells connected to a recorder. The initial tests with such a system are presented in this paper.
