My dissertation work involved the use of B&K 4003s to measure infrared spectra.
How do you measure heat waves with a microphone? Infrasound would be more to the liking of those mics. We hung some 4006's in the chimney of a factory to measure the spectra for sound control. Didn't last long... And don't try to measure at -50C with B&K stuff, the preamps have a heater that put out enough heat for a room (well, out measuring chamber anyway). Had to disconnect that. First class stuff that B&K gear.

It's actually a pretty nifty technique. You modulate the incident light, then the material surface alternately heats and cools, causing the boundary layer of air (or other gas) to expand and contract. That produces sound.

The advantage is that you can get absorption spectra from "difficult" samples, things that are tough to measure via transmission or reflection.

The B&K mikes are wonderful. Not that I would have ever stooped so low as to commandeer them when I wanted to record something...

Why was the Navy doing ESR?
It had to do with super-conductivity of copper-gold alloys, the Navy had a research institute which farmed out projects. Working in physics research convinced me that there were more fun things to do in life.

Anyone has an idea?! Thanks!

You might search for electrostatic headphone amplifer circuits. Cant use smd at high voltage.

I do not know what about the SMD-mounted amplifier, but in such an amplifier circuit for 1500 - 2000 watts I have. It is only necessary to take good kandensatory on the power supply and very powerful diode bridges. I think that the power amplifier does not make sense to make a pulsed power supply due to strong fluctuations at maximum capacity. This amplifier ripple current at full power for about 10 - 15 amps. With such a supply voltage and currents of these seems to me that the surface mount assembly, it is not realistic at least.
