Optical Techniques to Examine the Scattering of Rayleigh Surface Waves
This paper presents the results of an experimental investigation of the interaction of Rayleigh waves with corners. The experiments are done with a dual probe interferometer to measure the interaction of a normal incident Rayleigh wave with corners of varying angles. The incident Rayleigh waves are optically generated with a pulsed laser. The effects of the corners on the Rayleigh waves are then characterized and a finite impulse response (FIR) filter is designed to remove them.
