Response of surface acoustic wave imaging systems to cylindrical inhomogeneities
The authors present a theory to predict the response of a SAW (surface acoustic wave) imaging system. In particular, they calculate the response to cylindrical cavities as a function of cavity position with respect to the ...
Use of a conical axicon as a surface acoustic wave focusing device
Ultrasonic axicons generate waves which focus on a line. They are used in various imaging applications as hulk wave focusing devices with a very long depth of focus. A new type of conical axicon is introduced. It consists ...
Imaging flaws close to surface using focused surface acoustic waves
The resolving power and detection ability of the focused surface acoustic wave (SAW) imaging modality is investigated in this paper. In this mode of imaging, conical bulk acoustic waves are used to generate and focus leaky ...
