Trushkevych, Oksana; Eriksson, Tobias J. R.; Ramadas, Sivaram Nishal; Dixon, Steve M.; Edwards, R. S. (Rachel S.);

Acousto-optic effects are demonstrated in polymer dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC) films, showing promise for applications in ultrasound sensing. The PDLC films are used to image two displacement profiles of an air-coupled flexural transducers resonant modes at 295 kHz a... View more
