Paper Abstract

Soft matter acoustics is concerned with the application of acoustical techniques in the study of soft matter. In this paper, we demonstrate the use of phase sensitive acoustic microscopy (PSAM) in synchronous mapping of threedimensional heterogeneity of sample soft matter systems: thin film blends of polystyrene (PS) and poly (methylmethacrylate) (PMMA). The use of acoustic phase contrast imaging for cure or health monitoring of polymer systems is discussed.
