Event: 1984 European Conference on Optics, Optical Systems and Applications, 1984, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Following the suggestion of S.Y. Sokolov ( USSR ), a method and equipment has been developed whereby shortwavelength acoustic energy is used to produce magnified views of optically opaque samples non-destructively. The objective of this presentation is to acquaint the audience at this conference with the principle of operation and the application potential of the commercially available instrument based on this technique. The results also illustrate the synergy possible with the effective application of two modern technologies, i.e. acoustics and electro-optics. The acoustic waves reveal elasticity variations and hence provide new information on the observed sample's internal structure. The scanning focussed laser beam detects the acoustic information with high resolution and sensitivity.
