Abstract: Scanning acoustic microscopy (SAM) has been applied successfully to measure leaky surface wave(LSAW) velocity from V(z) curve for material characterization. Besides LSAW, SAM produces a variety of wave modes in the material propagating with different phase speeds and features, one of which is the mode-converted ultrasound. In this paper, a novel method for simultaneous measurement of longitudinal and transverse acoustic wave velocities using the mode-converted ultrasound is developed and studied at SAM. Each ultrasound arriving at the acoustic lens with different speed and phase (or time-of-flight (TOF)) is measured by the defocused transducer to calculate longitudinal and transverse wave velocities. Simple mathematical ray analysis for the mode conversion is conducted to determine the relationship of acoustic velocities with TOF of the waves in plate. Experimental results for metals and glass show that the longitudinal and transverse wave velocities measured by the proposed method are as accurate as maximum 3% in error.

Abstract: In this paper, elastic moduli of nanostructured alumina are evaluated by simultaneous measurement of longitudinal and shear wave velocities using mode-converted ultrasound in scanning acoustic microscope (SAM). Mode-converted longitudinal and shear waves inside alumina sample are captured to calculate acoustic wave velocities and determine elastic constants such as Young’s modulus and Bulk modulus. Al2O3 nanostructured alumina samples are formed by compacting micro-sized Al2O3 powder with nano-sized Al2O3 powder from 10wt% to 50wt%, and tested by SAM to investigate elastic moduli. A correlation is found from experiment that the more percentage of nano-particles are added, the higher elastic moduli are obtained. It is also shown that the mode-converted ultrasound is sensitive enough to characterize mechanical modulus of nanostructured alumina quantitatively.
