Description:

The only updated resource on acoustic microscopy covers its use in a range of applications spanning the fields of physics, materials science, electrical engineering, medicine, and research and industry.

Acoustic Microscopy offers detailed coverage of:

acoustic field structure
output signal formation in transmission raster acoustic microscopes
non-linear acoustic effects
visco-elastic properties and microstructure of model systems and composites
polymer composite materials
microstructure and physical-mechanical properties of biological tissues
and more
Acoustic Microscopy is an essential reference for materials scientists, electrical engineers, radiologists, laboratory medics, test engineers, physicists, and graduate students.
