Abstract
We demonstrate a noncontact photoacoustic imaging (PAI) system in which an optical interferometer is used for ultrasound detection. The system is based on a modified optical-fiber Michelson interferometer that measures the surface displacement caused by photoacoustic pressure. A synchronization method is utilized to keep its high sensitivity to reduce the influence of ambient vibrations. The system is experimentally verified by imaging of a phantom. The experimental results indicate that the proposed system can be used for noncontact PAI with high resolution and high bandwidth.
