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

Hi Marvin,

an alternative supplier could be Force Technology in Denmark, They are offering calibrated hydrophones; see http://www.force-institute.dk

Good luck,
Gerhard

Product Spotlight

Varex Imaging Large Field of View (FOV) Digital Detector Arrays (DDAs)

A larger FOV DDA can reduce the space and volume of the X-ray inspection system on the factory floor
...
, enable faster scanning times, better throughput and better resolution images at a lower dose. Customers can also save time and money. With these benefits in mind, Varex Imaging has designed a family of large FOV detectors (4343HE, XRD 1611, 4343DX-I, 4343CT) for our industrial imaging customers.

FMC/TFM

Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
...
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field

NEW! The PragmaPro Instrument Platform

The PragmaPro is based on a modular cartridge technology and supports various NDT instrument modal
...
ities such as UT, PAUT, ECT and many more. This new platform is based on a machined, powder-coated aluminum frame for shock-proofness, best sealing qualities and maximum heat dissipation. This is practical to extend the outdoor temperature range and/or to extend the power injected in the transducers. The PragmaPro is aiming at a very wide range of applications, such as weld scanning, corrosion mapping and composite testing.
