Images are presented which illustrate applications of the scanning acoustic microscope to problems in studies of materials. In transmission the structure of a diffusion bond is revealed; in reflection images of grains, cracks and oxides are shown. A theoretical outline is given indicating how the microscope may be used as a quantitative elastic microprobe.
