Diffraction effects

Dear colleagues

I'm trying to measure small flat-bottom holes (diameters from 0.5 to 10 mm) in a steel specimen by scanning them with a longitudinal immersion 10 MHz focussed probe.

My question are:

1. How diffraction effects can alter the reflection of the ultrasonic beam when part of it hits the edge of the hole?

2. Can I take into account these effects in order to "correct" the size which comes from the C-scan results?

3. Is there any literature reference (please not too theoretical if possible) on this topic?

Thanks in advance

Massimiliano Pau

P.S. thanks to Joe Buckley for his precious advice about the noise with electromagnetic fields generated by an inverter. It worked!

>Dear, Mr Pau.
I have experience of a ultrasonic control thin-walled (0,5-5mm) of welded
seams on frequencies 10-15MHz by a focusing transducer (immersion control).
A diameter of a focal spot 0,5mm. C-scan the image of an imperfection (flaw)
is a convolution of two functions: functions of reflection of an
imperfection (flaw) (including diffractional effects) and cut of a focal
spot. The dependence of sort is obtained: "conditional square - diameter of
an imperfection (flaw)".
