Abstract

This report proposes a novel technique for measuring of acoustic fields in water. A Laser Hydrophone is proposed taking advantage of the properties of Total Internal Reflection. A theoretical analysis of the idea is presented followed by a prediction of the operating characteristics of an actual system. Actual data were taken with the proposed system and it is compared to the predicted.
