Experimental Progress of Ultrasonic Time Reversal Mirrors
The localization of structures in heterogeneous materials is usually made by echo imaging systems. The focussing of ultrasonic waves through such heterogeneous media remains difficult, because the beam is deflected and distorted by the heterogeneities.
