An introduction to scanning acoustic microscopy
This up-to-date handbook provides a lucid introduction to acoustic microscopes with submicron resolution. The first half of the handbook shows how to operate the instrument, offering a description of a typical acoustic microscope, some detailed guidance for use, and a helpful discussion of the elements of contrast theory. The second half examines samples of the images that can be obtained, including micrographs of composites, grain structure, layered devices, and fine microcracks. The author has designed the book to help both those who have recently purchased an acoustic microscope and those who merely wish to find out if an acoustic microscope can help their research, whether it be in materials science, metallurgy, surface physics, or surface chemistry.
