摘要： An acoustic sensing system and method includes at least one cluster of acoustic sensors in communication with a computing device. The computing device is configured to process received acoustic signals, and provide at least one of detection of the acoustic source presence; determination of direction of arrival of an acoustic wave emitted by an acoustic source; and classification of the acoustic source as to its nature. The cluster may include at least two sensors and the computing device may be configured to process the received acoustic signals and provide localization of the acoustic source in three dimensions. The cluster of acoustic sensors may comprise at least one seismic wave sensor.

Core of the system are: optical unit, controller unit and software. The other parts: fs-laser system； focusing unit； stage unit can be varied (exchangeable). Two different fs-laser systems already are compatible with core of FMS: Mira/RegA (Coherent) and Hurricane (Spectra-Physics). FMS controller unit allows to control every single fs-pulse delivery on the target. Three possible types of focusing unit are available: microscope type unit, long focal distance lens unit, and axicon lens based unit. Standard stage unit options are: three-axis piezostage, and two-axis air bearing stage combined with Z-axis piezostage. Repeatability for all dimensions is within ±5 nm. Also, step motor stages are available. The system allows 3D scan with confocal laser-microscope (resolution δr=200nm, δz=540nm) build in optical unit. Software controls all basic functions of the system performance and writing any pattern (including 3D) on or into specimen. The results obtained by direct fs-laser writing method are presented and discussed: bits in the range of 100 - 200 nm sizes, 6 TB/cm3 density optical storage matrix, waveguides fabrication inside transparent materials, high aspect ratio (1:125) patterning of dielectric materials with Gauss-Bessel beam.
