Description

An ideal ultrasonic transducer will be one which responds accurately to an ultrasonic waveform. Information contained within the original waveform should be easily obtained from the output of such a transducer. This will require the transducer to have a number of characteristics: (1) Wide bandwidth — for some measurements response up to 10MHz is required. (2) High sensitivity — gives the ability to detect defects at a distance. (3) Low distortion of waveform — preferably non-contacting to avoid loading the acoustic wave. (4) Practicality.
