19 September 2016 Photoacoustic wave detection on water using a fiber optic transducer
Author Affiliations +
In this work, a fiber optic microphone system was built and tested. The purpose of the fiber microphone is to sense photoacoustic waves produced by water molecules excited by an ultrafast laser. The use of a fiber sensor allows for ease of three-dimension measurement implementation for a 3-D imaging based on water amounts of different materials, this sensor can be directly submerged in water or a phantom gel without electromagnetic interference nor corrosion.
