Paper Abstract

The aim of the article is to introduce into usage of waveguide for the medical invasion treatment and to provide methods that allow investigating the vibrations of the stainless steel waveguide by combining non-contact techniques with the state-of-the-art multiphysics software. The vibrations of the waveguide, used in surgery are examined by the aids of the hybrid numerical-experimental techniques, acoustic emission method, holographic interferometry technique and vibrometer based on Doppler shift of backscattered laser light. The virtual modeling of the waveguide is used by the Comsol Multiphysics software.
