Author Affiliations +
In this paper, a novel ultrasonic propagation imaging system, called a full-field pulse-echo ultrasonic propagation imaging (FF PE UPI) system is presented. The coincided laser beams for ultrasonic sensing and generation are scanned and pulse-echo mode laser ultrasounds are captured. This procedure makes it possible to generate full-field ultrasound in through-the-thickness direction as large as the scan area. The system nondestructively inspected targets with two-axis translation stages. Various structural inspection results in the form of full-field ultrasonic wave propagation videos are introduced, which are an aluminum honeycomb sandwich, ailerons and carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) honeycomb sandwich structures including various defects.
