Ultrasonic transducer array design for medical imaging based on MEMS technologies


Piezoelectric micromachined ultrasonic transducer (pMUT) is a new approach to form high frequency arrays for real-time 3-D medical imaging. pMUT arrays based on SOI-Si bonding and PZT-coated membrane structures have been designed in this paper. After simulation, the 6×6 ultrasonic transducer array was fabricated and characterized. The total array… (More)
