This Letter presents a series of time reversal experiments conducted on the surface of a fused silica glass block. Four different time reversal techniques are compared using three different imaging conditions. The techniques include two classical time reversal experiments: one with a pulse waveform source and one with an impulse response generated from a chirp signal. The other two techniques utilize the deconvolution, or inverse filter, signal processing methods for obtaining the signals to back propagate using a pulse waveform and an impulse response from a chirp. The max-in-time, symmetry, and energy current imaging conditions are compared.
