Abstract

For a few years the Franco-German Research Institute (ISL) has been active in investigating lesions and traumatisms generated under the action of strong acoustic noise such as occurs in the environment of aeronautics. In this context the acoustic stimulus transmitted from the external medium to the ear must be investigated. One possibility of carrying out successfully those investigations consists in using optical methods in order to measure the very weak displacements of the various components which form the auditory chain [1].
