Abstract
Broadband ultrasonic stress waves have been generated and detected in solid resin specimens using embedded fiber elements. Generation was achieved by launching a short, high energy pulse into a large diameter fiber rod having one end embedded in the specimen. Absorption at an absorber location along the length of the fiber produced ultrasonic wave motion through rapid localized heating. The generated waves were detected using a stabilized Mach-Zehnder fiber interferometer with part of one arm embedded several centimeters from the generation site.
