Paper Abstract

An ultrasonic hydrophone based on a dual polarization distributed Bragg reflector (DBR) fiber laser is described, and its application to detecting the vector medical ultrasound is demonstrated. The principle of the hydrophone is based on the detection of output beat frequency signal modulated by ultrasound. The amplitude, frequency and orientation of the ultrasound can be determined by the using the upper and lower sideband frequency. It has been found that the hydrophone has an orientation recognizable ability which the piezoelectric ultrasonic immersion transducer doesn’t have. It suggests that the type of hydrophone can provide an alternative to piezoelectric hydrophone technology.
