Comparison of the frequency and physical nature of the lowest order parasitic mode in single crystal and ceramic 2-2 and 1-3 piezoelectric composite transducers

Abstract

This work describes an investigation into the first order parasitic mode (i.e., that closest to the fundamental thickness mode) that can occur in 2-2 and 1-3 thickness drive piezoelectric composite transducers. Specifically, the authors compare the performance of piezoceramic and piezocrystal composites with a common passive phase. A local Lamb wave… (More)
