bandshape for ultrasonic probe

My name is Simone Brocco, I'm an Italian student in his final year in Biomedical Engineering- "La Sapienza" University in Rome (Italy).
I'm working on my thesis concerning Ultrasonic Transducers for Noninvasive Medical Application: probe (backing load,bonding layer,PZT,matching layers and acoustical lens).
For my thesis I'm now verifying the correspondence between the texts on the argument and the effective realization by constructors.
Now I'm studing the function of matching layer. I read that it modify the band pass characteristic of system.
My question is: what is the best bandpass characteristic for a short impulse and why? There are other? Why?

Re: bandshape for ultrasonic probe
Increase bandwidth = decrease sensitivity

increase velocity = increase wavelength = decrease near field

increase pulse length = decrease resolution

increase Q = decrease bandwidth = increase depth of penetration

decrease wavelength = increased sensitivity = decrease near zone = decrease beam spread

increase transducer dia = decrease beamspread = decrease sensitivity = increase near field

increase frequency = decrease beam spread = increase sensitivity = decreased wavelength = decrease depth of penetration = increase near zone

Kindest Regards

Product Spotlight

Echomac® PA Tube Weld Tester

The new robotic Echomac® PA TW is an operator friendly test system for detecting weld zone defects
in tube and pipe caused by scarfing or welding processes. Electronic scanning ensures that the entire weld zone is covered without the need for mechanical movement or operator adjustment.

UCI Hardness Tester NOVOTEST T-U2

UCI hardness tester NOVOTEST T-U2 is is used for non-destructive hardness testing of: metals and
alloys by scales of hardness: Rockwell (HRC), Brinell (HB), Vickers (HV); non-ferrous metals, alloys of iron etc., and using five additional scales for calibration; with tensile strength (Rm) scale determines the tensile strength of carbon steel pearlitic products by automatic recalculation from Brinell (HB) hardness scale.
