Abstract

We describe how the application of maximum-length sequence (m-sequence) coding can be used to improve the measured signal-to-noise ratio of ultrasonic waves generated by a low power laser diode. Lamb waves were generated in thin metallic plates using a pulsed excitation. To improve the signal-to-noise ratio of the detected signal, various signal processing methods have been evaluated, with m-sequences described here. We also show how the spectral content of the ultrasonic wave can be controlled by using a modified m-sequence approach
