TY - CHAP A1 - Tao Li A2 - Jan Ma A3 - Adrian F. Low ED1 - Farzad Ebrahimi Y1 - 2011-11-25 PY - 2011 T1 - Horn-Type Piezoelectric Ultrasonic Transducer: Modelling and Applications N2 - The piezoelectric transducer converts electric signals into mechanical vibrations or vice versa by utilizing the morphological change of a crystal which occurs on voltage application, or conversely by monitoring the voltage generated by a pressure applied on a crystal. This book reports on the state of the art research and development findings on this very broad matter through original and innovative research studies exhibiting various investigation directions. The present book is a result of contributions of experts from international scientific community working in different aspects of piezoelectric transducers. The text is addressed not only to researchers, but also to professional engineers, students and other experts in a variety of disciplines, both academic and industrial seeking to gain a better understanding of what has been done in the field recently, and what kind of open problems are in this area.
