New single crystal piezoelectrics were investigated as improved transducer materials. Single crystals take advantage of crystallographic engineering to produce high piezoelectric and electromechanical coupling coefficients. Single crystal lead magnesium niobate-lead titanate (PMN) was substituted for the piezoelectric ceramic section of a tonpilz transducer design, in order to reduce length and improve bandwidth and output power. Predictions and measurements of transmit performances were made… CONTINUE READING
