This paper reviews applications of wideband frequency modulation techniques to acoustic microscopy. The similarities and differences between chirped systems in which the waveform is recompressed with a matched filter and those in which non-linear mixing is used are discussed. Many of the considerations which determine the performance of the systems are presented.
