Mr. Henry Cook

Ultrasonic Phased Arrays
How it works and what it can do


Phased-array technology is the ability to electronically modify the acoustic probe characteristics. Probe modifications are performed by introducing time shifts in the signal sent to and received from individual elements of an array probe. This can provide high speed electronic scanning without moving parts. Improved inspection capabilities are possible through software control of UT beam characteristics, providing greater flexibility for inspection of complex geometries .

This presentation will introduce ultrasonic phased array principle and capabilities.
