The exact Green’s function of a heterogeneous medium can be retrieved from the crosscorrelation of the fields received by two passive sensors. We propose a physical interpretation based on time-reversal symmetry. We address the issue of causality and show the role of multiple scattering for the reconstruction of the Green’s function. Ultrasonic experimental results are presented to illustrate the argument. Applications to geophysics and ocean acoustics are discussed. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.

    Chirp sonar systems can be used to obtain high resolution seismic reflection images of the sub-seafloor during marine surveys. The exact knowledge of the Chirp signature allows the use of deterministic algorithms to process the data, similarly to that applied to Vibroseis data on land. Here, it...

    Aircraft efficiency is improved by implementing more accurate fluid level measurement solutions. Reducing the amount of fuel or water needed during a flight reduces the weight and increases the aircraft efficiency.
