16 May 2018 Seeing the sound we hear: optical technologies for visualizing sound wave
Author Affiliations +
Optical methods have been applied to visualize sound waves, and these have received a considerable amount of attention in both optical and acoustical communities. We have researched optical methods for sound imaging including laser Doppler vibrometry and Schlieren method. More recently, parallel phase-shifting interferometry with a high-speed polarization camera has been used, and it can take a slow-motion video of sound waves in the audible range. This presentation briefly reviews the recent progress in optical imaging of sound in air and introduces the applications including acoustic transducer testing and investigation of acoustic phenomena.
