Laboratory Services

Lambda Research, Inc., part of Lambda Technologies Group, is a world-class materials testing facility, specializing in residual stress measurement and design. Materials testing helps determine if critical components can withstand the load and stress conditions of operations.

With over 200 years of combined experience and more than half a million completed measurements, Lambda is a name people trust.

We are accredited by the American Association for Laboratory Accreditations (A2LA) in accordance with ISO/IEC 17025. We design and develop our own measurement instrumentation, data collection, and data reduction software.

Residual Stress Measurement >

We are the preeminent source of residual stress measurement using X-ray diffraction and mechanical residual stress measurement methods.

 

Retained Austenite Measurement >

We are the only accredited, independent laboratory using Bragg-Brentano diffractometers in strict adherence to ASTM E975 and SAE
SP-453 specifications.

Phase
Analysis >

We offer a broad array of X-ray diffraction and fluorescence testing capabilities in the areas of qualitative and quantitative phase analysis.

Crystallographic Texture
& Orientations >

We have extensive experience determining crystallographic texture or preferred orientation in a wide variety of materials and forms.

Surface
Integrity >

We provide comprehensive testing and engineering for the design of surface treatment and machining processes to increase the life of your parts.

Finite Element
& Modal Analysis >

We provide finite element analysis in support of residual stress design and characterization, and modal analysis to determine the natural frequency of components.

Crystallite/Lattice Parameter Measurement >

We use X-ray diffraction to determine crystallite size and microstrain; we determine precise lattice parameters using powdered or solid samples.
