Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Conventional acoustic microscopy with only C-mode imaging has widened its data acquisition mode to B-mode, C-mode, surface acoustic impedance mode and three-dimensional (3D) mode. The base of our acoustic microscope system was consisted of (1) PVDF transducer with the central frequency of 100 MHz, (2) ultrasonic pulser made of high speed semiconductor switching, (3) mechanical scanner using two linear servo motors, (4) high speed PCI card digitizer with the sampling frequency of 2 GHz, and (5) personal computer controlling the whole system.
