Micro-surfaces

Hello, I am doing investigation into the scatter of ultrasound at high frequencies. I need to be able to create "known" regular surfaces on a small scale, for example a micro-pyramidal surface with each pyramid having a base 1 micron by 1 micron. Or maybe a sinusoidal surface - anything so long as it is regular and has features of the order 1-10 microns. I am totally drawing a blank on any companies which might be able to create such surfaces and wondered if any of you could help.

Thanks a lot

Amy Quinn

You should try to make phase hologramms (with mudulation on the surface) - this should fulfill your requirements.

I did reply to Amy Quinn's query to her e-mail. sorry about that because on that day i couldn't access internet. i suggested 3 or 4 alternatives, like making a microhardness indentation, using a densely sintered metallic material which will have a few pores etc. i am waiting for her reaction.

Re: Micro-surfaces
Amy,

Making shapes and structures in the size of microns is
part of the field of micro-electro-mechanical systesm (MEMS).
In order to find an organization that can help you making
the desired features you may want to send an e-mail to the MEMS
Newsgroup at MEMS@ISI.EDU

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
