Chirp coded ultrasonic pulses used for scanning acoustic microscopy
In the present study, chirp coded pulses are investigated with respect to high frequency imaging. These pulses were used drive broadband polymer transducers assembled from an adhesive-free layer-be-layer deposition method. The image quality obtained from using a long chirp coded pulse was compared with images generated from shorter pulses. This includes the Ricker wavelet and the square pulse most commonly used for scanning acoustic microscopes.
