Abstract

An experimental setup for combined photoacoustic (PA) and optically mediated ultrasound (US) microscopy is presented. A spherically focused 35 MHz polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) ultrasonic detector with a numerical aperture of 0.28, a focal distance of 9 mm, and a bandwidth (6dB level) of 24 MHz was used to obtain PA and US data with a 3 mm imaging depth. A fiber-optic system was employed to deliver laser excitation pulses from a tunable laser to the studied medium. A single optical pulse was used to form both PA and US A-scans. The probing US pulses were generated thermoelastically due to absorption of backscattered laser radiation by the metalized surface of a PVDF film.
