In principle it is possible to reconstruct the reflectance function of a surface from V(z) data. This requires either that V(z) should be measured as a complex‐valued function, or that phase reconstruction techniques should be used. In practice the highest accuracy is obtained by measuring the period of oscillations in V(z), and using ray analysis. The highest accuracy is obtained from a cylindrical line‐focus‐beam lens, which also gives directionality in anisotropic surfaces. Accuracy better than one part in 104 can be obtained. Stress fields can be imaged and measured. Time‐resolved techniques, enhanced if necessary by a maximum entropy method, give quantitative measurements by separating the echoes from the top and bottom of thin layers.

Keywords:   V(z) reflectance function, phase reconstruction, line‐focus‐beam, cylindrical lens, anisotropy, accuracy, stress, time‐resolved, maximum entropy method
