multiply scattered waves

Multiply scattered waves sense fractal microscopic structures via dispersion

In this collaborative study [62] with Ralph Sinkus and Sverre Holm, we demonstrate by experiment and theory the ability of elastic waves to sense random microstructures that are three decades smaller in size than the probing wavelength. Our analysis deploys an extension of the O’Doherty-Anstey (ODA) theory and the fact that interparticle distances in random monosized distributions may exhibit fractal character.
