Abstract : The patent relates to a new apparatus and method of mapping acoustic pressure fields. It uses the interaction of the acoustic field with a high frequency electromagnetic wave in a distributed transducer. The inherent capability of the concept of operating with high date rates without undue complexity of implementation renders it attractive to applications requiring high resolution and high speed.
