Transducers, having one piezoelectric layer near its half-wave resonance and N quarter-wave layers, are designed using computer optimization to adjust the thicknesses and impedances of the various layers so as to fit the resulting transfer function to a target function. An augmented Mason model is used to evaluate the transducer. Optimization of fit is by a… (More)
