One channel spatio-temporal inversion of acoustic wave in reverberant cavities

Abstract : It has been recently shown that it was possible to optimally recover the Green functions from a complex wave field despite of a non-isotropic distribution of the noise sources. The method used is based on a particular use of the inverse filter (IF) formalism which is called the passive IF. Based on this formalism, we have investigated the possibility to control the spatio-temporal degrees of freedom in a reverberant cavity for the focusing of waves (active processes). The understanding of this phenomenon can be very useful in a lot of different applications like in acoustical imaging, seismology, or telecommunications. In the present work, the spatio-temporal focalization of ultrasounds in reverberant cavities is studied using medical arrays and water tanks. Through experiments, a complete spatio-temporal inversion is realized to synthesize optimized emitting signals. The result generalizes the focalization control over a spatial vector and during an arbitrary time window.
