This work evaluates the capabilities of a digital camera selected for use in a thermal spray diagnostic system. The CCD-based image sensor, a Sony Exview HAD, was tested in an industrial plasma-spraying process and is assessed in terms of the information it provides about the plasma jet, particle-substrate interactions, and coating growth. Zirconium dioxide and aluminum oxide ceramics are examined as typical powder systems. Paper includes a German-language abstract.
