Abstract

We present a new method for sensitive ultrasound detection using an open-cavity optoacoustic sensor. Our results have demonstrated significant enhancement of detection sensitivity when the open-cavity sensor is used in media with large isothermal compressibility. A near-linear relationship between detected optoacoustic signal strength and isothermal compressibility has been found.
