The transducer is probably the single most important component of any ultrasonic imaging system. A basic introduction to the problems and paradoxes of transducer design is given. After introducing the piezoelectric equations and discussing important transducer material such as lead zirconate titanate and polyvinylidene difluoride, the techniques for modeling the electromechanical impulse response are reviewed. Quarter-wave matching and short pulse techniques are discussed. The prediction of the… CONTINUE READING
