An introduction to recent advances in acoustic microscopy and high-resolution ultrasonic imaging, and to their growing status worldwide. This carefully edited reference offers a unique overview of the physical principles and applications of ultrasonic imaging, resulting from novel transducer materials and array solutions as yet uncovered in book form. As such, the book covers in a compact and accessible way a broad spectrum of methodological approaches and advanced techniques that have been successfully verified in numerous studies both in academic and industrial environments, thus enabling experts from different disciplines to apply these methods and so further their research. Starting with a short introduction at the beginning of each chapter, the leading authors in their respective fields describe both concepts for future imaging systems as well as recent implementations of modern technology for advanced imaging devices. The result is a handy reference for materials scientists, electrical engineers, and life scientists wishing to apply ultrasonic high-resolution imaging technology and methods in their research. It is equally useful for developers of modern imaging techniques and graduate students in any discipline calling for the characterization of elastic structures.
