Abstract
For applications involving the determination of variations of the time-of-flight in pulsed echo or transit experiments a method has been developed based on Fourier transformation with forced optimized compression of the reference signal to an only bandwidth limited approximation of a Dirac-function. The respective transformation of time shifted response signals allows the effective separation of otherwise overlapping signals and the detection of differences in the time-of-flight for the individual components with high resolution. The developed processing scheme corrects for dispersion and attenuation in the electronics, the transmission lines, and the transducers. The method is presented and applications are demonstrated.
