In this paper, laser-ultrasonic non-destructive testing is used to investigate the propagation of Lamb waves in two-dimensional phononic crystal plates. The bandgaps are experimentally observed for low-order Lamb wave modes. The influence of crucial parameters such as the periodical arrangement of scatterers on bandgaps is discussed in detail. The finite element simulations further agree well with the results of the laser-ultrasonic investigation.
