In this study the ultrasonic field distortions and the temperature measurement errors caused by temperature sensing probes were investigated. It was found that probes with diameters equal to or greater than 1/2 of the square root of the wavelength (lambda) scatter and reflect the waves, and thus distort the field significantly. Smaller probes down to lambda 1/2/5 in diameter had a detectable effect which was very local and, therefore, will probably not have a significant effect on the overall… CONTINUE READING
