High-resolution ultrasonic spectroscopy is a novel technique for the direct and non-destructive analysis of the intrinsic properties of materials. It is now possible to measure both ultrasonic attenuation and ultrasonic velocity to a very high resolution in a broad range of sample types and volumes, thus greatly expanding the applications for this technique.
