UNSPECIFIED. (1991) ROCK PROPERTY ASSESSMENT USING LASER-GENERATED ACOUSTIC-WAVES. REVIEW OF SCIENTIFIC INSTRUMENTS, 62 (8). pp. 1995-1998. ISSN 0034-6748Full text not available from this repository.
A pulsed laser has been used to generate wide bandwidth acoustic pulses in a range of rock samples in the laboratory. A nonresonant piezoelectric transducer was used as the detector. This system can measure longitudinal and shear wave velocities simultaneously, from a single waveform, and can also be used to determine frequency-dependent attenuation in the MHz region. Values of a quality factor (Q) for longitudinal waves are evaluated.
