Description

Historically in the development of transducer technology, much emphasis has been placed upon advanced linear and annular arrays with little effort directed toward designing more efficient, broadband, single-element transducers, which are employed in most field applications. Southwest Research Institute funded an internal research project to investigate three novel approaches to efficient broadband transducer design: polarization control (1), pulse-shape control (2), and back-face concavity control (3).
