Abstract

The ion beam excited acoustic microscope (IAM) is a new microscope which provides visual representations of the elastic waves caused by localized chopping ion energy. Topographs and images of ultrasonic attenuation and local elastic variation were obtained by measuring frequency and amplitude at a composite resonant point between transducer and sample. Acoustic images of the teeth were measured by IAM. The elasticity of the hydroxyapatite crystal of the teeth was examined.
