Abstract

This paper reviews the principles and applications of scanning acoustic microscopy (SAM) in materials science applications. It should be emphasized that the SAM uses two distinct techniques depending on its application and that confusion arises if these modes of operation are not separated. The power of the techniques for imaging cracks, subsurface voids and various discontinuities is discussed. The developments necessary to make the SAM a universal technique in materials testing are outlined.
