Abstract

This paper describes an all optical non-contact technique to determine material properties in a mechanical structure. Using optical generation of ultrasound and interferometric optical detection to determine the dispersion curves for acoustic (Lamb) waves, readily available numerical algorithms have produced values of Young's Modulus and Poisson ratio with confidence limits of a few per cent. The approach may be applied to inspection regions with dimension in the range microns to centimetres.
