Accurate Field Analysis of the Propagation of Elastic Waves Through an Acoustic Microscope, Part I: Theory

The theory of the accurate field analysis of the propagation of elastic waves through the components of a lens system is described and illustrated by an acoustic microscope. The acoustic microscope is taken to have rotational symmetry about an axis and a longitudinal section is modeled by a series of finite elements, each having its own stiffness tensor… CONTINUE READING
