Abstract

It is possible to define a V(Z) function for the surface acoustic wave (SAW) focusing system for a class of reflectors similar to that defined in acoustic microscopy. In this case V(Z) is a function which relates the transducer output voltage to the distance between the focal point and the reflection line. It is possible to express V(Z) in an analytical expression using angular spectrum techniques. V(Z) is measured for straight edge reflectors forming various angles with the surface. V(2) of straight step reflectors are investigated. These curves show a dependence on the type of reflector. The experiments are performed at 1.5 MHz in conjunction with a computerized data acquisition system. The phase information is also recorded in all these measurements in addition to the amplitude. It is possible to get an inversion of V(Z) to get the SAW reflection coefficient at a straight discontinuity.
