  • There are essentially two kinds of mechanisms for generating ultrasound:
  • the first one is perfectly nondestructive and is based on a thermoelastic mechanism
  • the second one is invasive and is based on the ablation of the sample or on the vaporization of some surface layer.

The principle of thermoelastic generation is the following: laser light is absorbed to some depth inside the material releasing heat locally; the heated region then expands producing a strain and a corresponding stress that is the source of waves propagating in the material or at its surface. When light penetration is small and the excitation spot much less than an acoustic wavelength, a complex emission pattern is observed in the far field with inclined lobes (from 30 to 60°) for the longitudinal and shear waves. There is in particular no longitudinal emission along the normal to the surface.

Surface waves and plate waves can also be generated efficiently and in a very versatile manner. When the laser beam is focused to a small circular spot, a surface wave with a cylindrical symmetry is emitted from this spot. Good directivity is obtained by focusing the beam with a cylindrical lens to get a line source.

More complicated patterns can even be used, such as an array of lines, giving narrower band emission but having the advantage to distribute the laser energy over a broader area so surface damage can be avoided.

A converging circular Rayleigh surface wave giving very strong displacement at the center of convergence can be readily obtained by using, in addition to the conventional spherical lens, an axicon (conical lens). Enhancement techniques have been developed by sweeping the line or line array source with a proper velocity.

If one increases the energy density, particularly for small light penetration (metals), one reaches the threshold where the surface starts to melt and then to get vaporized. At this point, matter is ejected from the surface and through various physical processes this vapor and the surrounding air is ionized, thus producing a plasma plume that expands away from the laser spot on the surface. Generation of ultrasound originates from the initial recoil produced by the material ablation and from the plasma pressure. A similar vaporization effect occurs also when the material is covered by a thin absorbing layer, which is blown off, leaving the substrate underneath substantially unaffected if the energy density is below some threshold. In the strong plasma regime on the other hand, a crater mark is left on the surface..

To detect ultrasound, the surface is illuminated by a laser beam, continuous or of pulse duration sufficiently long to capture all the ultrasonic signal of interest. Scattered or reflected light is then collected by an optical receiver, which is in the case of most industrial applications an interferometer

Principle of optical detection of ultrasound with an interferometer

(here sketched as a confocal Fabry-Perot): the interfrometer converts the phase or frequency modulation produced by the surface motion in an intensity modulation.

intereferometr febry perot
Intereferometr Febry- Perot

A practical interferometer, which is by now widely used, is the confocal Fabry-Perot. This is a simple system made of two concave identical mirrors separated by a distance equal to their radius of curvature. In excellent approximation each ray retraces its path after multiple reflections in the resonator, which gives to the system a high collection efficiency (etendue or throughput). It can be used in transmission or in reflection. In transmission the responsivity peaks at a frequency equal to about a resonance width. The reflection scheme has on the other hand nearly flat frequency response above this frequency, except for periodic drops at integer of the free spectral range. It should be noted that the responsivity is practically zero at very low frequencies, which means that this system is intrinsically insensitive to vibrations, a key advantage for use in industrial environments. The main weakness of Fabry-Perot demodulators is their lack of sensitivity at low ultrasonic frequencies (below 2 MHz), which is circumvented by devices based on two-wave mixing in photorefractive materials.

Laserowa detekcja drgań – układ dwuwiązkowy

A signal beam which acquires phase shift and speckle after reflection on a surface in ultrasonic motion, is mixed in a photorefractive crystal with a pump plane wave to produce a speckle adapted reference wave that propagates in the same direction as the transmitted signal wave and interferes with it.

Laserowa detekcja drgań – układ dwuwiązkowycd

One important advantage of the photorefractive demodulator with respect to the confocal Fabry-Perot is its better sensitivity at low ultrasonic frequencies (below 1 MHz), thus allowing probing more easily materials with strong ultrasonic attenuation. The system has also the advantage to be easily combined with a differential or balanced scheme (two detectors giving responses to phase modulation of opposite sign), so the noise coming from the laser intensity fluctuations can be eliminated to a large extent.

Laserowa detekcja drgań - cechy lasera

One key element of the detection scheme is the detection laser. It should be high power, since sensitivity increases with power, and should not contribute to any noise in addition to the fundamental photon or shot noise. High power is particularly needed when the surface is absorbing and detection is at a large distance giving a small collection solid angle. The pulse duration should be sufficiently long to capture all the signal of interest, which means for many applications a duration between 10 and 100µs. Nd-YAG technology at 1.06 µm, which is known to provide high amplification gain, is particularly suited for realizing such a laser by amplifying a small and very stable Nd-YAG laser oscillator. A suitable oscillator is commercially available with power from 100 mW to about 2 W and is based on a small monolithic cavity pumped by a laser diode. Depending upon the repetition rate, the amplifier could be flashlamp pumped (up to 100 Hz) or diode pumped (above 100 Hz). Peak powers of 1 kW and more are typically obtained with pulse duration of the order of 50 µs. More recently, since such a master oscillator-pulsed amplifier system is complex and costly, IMI/NRC has been working on the development of a pulsed oscillator without seeding giving directly about 100 W

Regarding imaging, a numerical imaging approach such as the one based on the Synthetic Aperture Focusing Technique (SAFT) can be combined with laser-ultrasonics to obtain high quality images.

Processing can be done in the time domain but since this is can be very computation intensive and fairly long, methods that operate in Fourier space and make use of Fast Fourier Transform algorithms have been developed. These methods, significantly different from the conventional time SAFT, although sometimes called F-SAFT, are based on a plane wave decomposition of the acoustic field for each frequency combined with a back-propagation algorithm.

This processing technique has been applied in particular to the imaging of stress corrosion cracks in steel.

The Nd:YAG oscillator is coupled to a 1 mm diameter multimode optical fiber (ended with an SMA connector), and a variable optical attenuator is used to adjust the maximum power level that can be delivered onto the sample without damage. In order to concentrate as much as possible the ultrasound energy in the direction of the air coupled transducer, a focusing probe was developed to focus the laser beam into a line. In this way sufficient energy can be deposited without raising the power density so high as to cause ablation, and the wave propagation direction is restricted to be perpendicular to the line. The focusing arrangement is made of a plano-convex lens to collimate the laser beam emerging from the fiber, and a cylindrical lens to focus the beam into the line (about 10 mm x 0.5 mm) at the top surface of the sample. The optical assembly is placed into a stackable lens tube.Rayleigh waves propagating in the direction perpendicular to the laser line are detected with the air-coupled transducer placed at few millimeters in front of the optic probe..

This scanner moves the probe holder above the sample and keeps a constant gap between the transducer/optic probe block and the sample. The ultrasonic signal is amplified with a 25 dB LECOEUR Electronique preamplifier, and filtered with a WIDERANGE Decade Filter module. A digital AGILENT 54622A oscilloscope displays the ultrasonic waveforms, and the data are transferred and stored into a PC using an AGILENT E8408A VXI mainframe. A software was developed on HP VEE to control the generation laser, the XY scanner and the VXI board. Finally, the signal processing and the plot of the C-scan are performed with a dedicated PV WAVE software.

Typical shearographic setup in which the modified Michelson interferometer is used as a shearing device. The modified Michelson interferometer brings the light waves from two points: P1 and P2, on the object surface into one point: P, on the image plane by tilting the mirror 1 a very small angle. The intensity of the interferogram is then registered by a CCD camera and saved in the computer

Digital shearography is a laser measuring technique based on digital data processing, phase-shifting techniques and interferometry. According to the common sense of interferometry, two beams with an identical wavelength are required for a purpose of interference. Usually, an identical wavelength for the two beams can be obtained from one laser by using a beam splitter, such as the object beam and the reference beam used in the setups of holography and electronic speckle pattern interferometry (ESPI)7.

A distinguishing feature of shearography is the use of a self-reference interference system. Instead of using a reference beam, shearography utilizes a shearing device to bring the light waves from two points on the object surface into one point on the image plane, which results in an interference phenomenon, i.e. so-called speckle interferogram, without using an additional reference beam.

Shearography – a holografia

Holography detects a flaw by looking for displacement anomalies induced by the defect which look like a circular fringe patterns, whereas, shearography detects a flaw by looking for strain anomalies induced by the defect which look like a butterfly pattern in fringe pattern. Compared with holography which measures full-field displacement, shearography directly measures strain information and thus it is more direct and simple for detection of strain concentrations which are usually created at the positions of defects that decrease the strength of the structure.

The EMAT consists of a magnet that produces a bias magnetic field and a sensor coil that produces a dynamic magnetic field. The driving force uses a high frequency vibration of magnetostriction generated in the direction of the compound’s magnetic field by combining the dynamic magnetic field generated by a high frequency electric current in the sensor coil and the static field by the electromagnet.

Back reflected signals (echoes) from weld defects such as pores, holes, incomplete through-welding… are digitized; the maxima of the echo-amplitudes are displayed versus the probe position as Amplitude-Locus Curves (Scan).

The well scraped weld shows a very low amplitude level along the whole 16 m; whereas the scan of the badly scraped weld has a much higher amplitude level. The oscillations in the first 7 meters show a periodic change of the quality of the scraping. In the second half of the scan the decreasing level indicates a slow increasing of the scraping quality.

In case of external defects the wall (upper) thickness can be calculated using the time-offlight of the ultrasonic backwall echo signal. The shape of the artificial defects and the measured wall thickness fit very well. As expected, the EC technique does not show any indication.

Figure (bottom) shows the results when the defects are located at the internal side. In the defect areas the EMAT signal breaks down, and the ultrasonic thickness measurement is no longer possible. However, the EC technique now detects the inside defects.
