Abstract [en]

During the last ten years, time-reversal of acoustic fields have been shown to be a very useful technique in ultrasonic imaging and testing. With the use of transducer arrays, it is possible to steer the sound beam to an arbitrary position within the medium, even if the medium is inhomogeneous or contains scatterers. The major drawback with traditional beamforming and time-reversal techniques is that they require the use of transducer arrays. Recently a new technique was presented that, with the use of a waveguide, makes it possible to focus sound arbitrarily, with only one transducer elements. A problem with the setup is that the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is degraded because of interfering echoes from the waveguide. In this paper, we present an echo-cancellation scheme that results in an SNR gain of approximately 33 dB. This enables the new technique to be used in pulse-echo mode, where this was not previously possible.
