Description

There has been a lot of recent interest in the use of pulsed lasers for the generation of ultrasound in a range of media [1], due to advantages inherent in the generation process. These include the non-contact nature of the method, and the generation of a wide bandwidth over a small source area. The size and shape of the source can also be changed using suitable optics, as can the generation mechanism itself.
