A comparison of phase modulation and frequency modulation as applied to simple acoustic transducers is presented. We choose the complementary Barker code as the phase modulation code. To obtain optimal results an impulse response deconvolution is required. The final envelopes of the crosscorrelation of the reference signals and the recorded signals demonstrate the usefulness of the complementary Barker code. Whereas the chirp correlation envelope has two significant principal sidelobes, the Barker envelope has no such sidelobes
