Bulletin of the Russian Academy of Sciences: Physics Aims and scope


The paper considers a tomography scheme based on nonlinear interaction of three noncollinear primary waves and discusses how a signal appearing due to double second-order interaction affects estimation of the acoustic nonlinear parameters of a studied object. A technique is proposed for obtaining separate estimates of second- and third-order nonlinear parameters in the coding of the three primary waves.
