The time domain determination of the impulse response, or the reflection function of an acoustical system from data expressed in the frequency domain, is not immediate. Signal processing from frequency domain to time domain may involve non physical phenomena of large amplitude as unphysical oscillations known as "ripple". Signal processing techniques based on filtering in the frequency domain are often used to limit or remove this ripple. These techniques involve modifications on the original data and on the resulting time domain function. The aim of this study is to present a new tool to avoid such modifications: The reflection map. Its use combined with a new observable directly obtained from the reflection function, the integrated squared reflection function, allows a minimization of the ripple phenomenon that we show is impossible to eliminate except for a cylindrical tube.
