High frequency transducer with calibrated surface displacement

In order to calibrate an optical interferometer, I am looking for a transducer or other source with a known surface displacement (or velocity) when driven at a single frequency. The frequency range of interest is 20-150 MHz and eventually to 1 GHz. Resonant transducers at fixed frequencies would be OK. A small thin film device would be fine, as we can focus to a ~100 um spot.

Dear Marvin,

Precision Acoustics in the UK makes special hydrophones and ultrasound transducers for medical, NDT and scientific applications. They might be able to help you. Check out their web-site http://www.acoustics.co.uk/home.

Good luck, Elmar

TOPAZ® 64: Fully Integrated Portable 64 Channel PAUT Instrument with FMC & TFM

Introducing TOPAZ64, the industry’s most intelligent fully integrated, portable 64-channel phased
...
array ultrasound (UT) instrument. TOPAZ64 combines code-compliant phased array UT with the industry’s most advanced full matrix capture (FMC) and total focusing method (TFM) capabilities. Featuring the highest acquisition frequency in its class, high resolution FMC and a 12” multi-touchscreen, users can easily visualize even the smallest flaws. TOPAZ64 can generate a bipolar pulse that provides more acoustic energy versus previous models for punching through thick components. The result is a portable tool that delivers increased inspection coverage, more accurate signals, and the ability to handle all UT inspections in one package. TOPAZ64 is ideal for challenging applications in transportation, oil and gas, manufacturing and power generation.
