In order to select only the echo from the sample and eschew unwanted echoes, short pulses must be used, but the shorter the pulse in the time domain, the wider the bandwidth in the frequency domain. Quasi‐monochromatic circuits for quantitative acoustic microscopy enable you to have your cake and eat it, by selecting a single frequency in the comb which results from the repetitive nature of the pulses. If the highest possible timing resolution is needed very short broadband pulses can be generated, but the majority of quantitative applications require a well‐defined acoustic frequency.

Keywords:   time domain, frequency domain, quasi‐monochromatic, quantitative, short pulse
