Measuring Transient Structure-Borne Sound in Musical Instruments - Proposal and First Results from a Laser Intensity Measurement Setup

Document Thumbnail

The proposal for this new measurement setup is motivated by curiosity in transients propagating across arched tops of violins. Understanding the impact of edge construction on transient wave reflection back to the top of a violin or on conduction into the rib requires single-shot recordings possibly without statistical processing. Signal-to-noise ratio should be high although mechanical amplitudes at distinct locations on the structure surface are in the range of a few micrometers only. In the proposed setup, the intensity of a laser beam is directly measured after passing a screen attached to the device under test. The signal-to-noise ratio achieved for one micrometer transients in single-shot recordings is significantly more than 60 dB.
