Measurement of Broadband Temperature-Dependent Ultrasonic Attenuation and Dispersion Using Photoacoustics

Abstract

The broadband ultrasonic characterization of biological fluids and tissues is important for the continued development and application of high-resolution ultrasound imaging modalities. Here, a photoacoustic technique for the transmission measurement of temperature-dependent ultrasonic attenuation and dispersion is described. The system uses a photoacoustic… (More)
