Commercial vendor for lead metaniobate transducer

Does anyone know where to purchase lead metaniobate transducer?

Thanks.

Most of the lead metaniobate transducers I have bought over the years have come from Ultran in Pennsylvania. The telephone number is 814 861 2001.

GE Sensing and Inspection Technologies manufactures transducers with Lead Metaniobate (LM) ceramic. Before you buy you'll need to know what size, frequency, and bandwidth you need for your application. There's no way to tell which probe models have LM in them other than to ask the manufacturer. If you are looking for sources of raw LM ceramic, I know of three; Keramos, Piezokinetics, and Del Piezo.

Thanks Christoph's recommendation.
Lead metaniobate is a special material for transducer. It's low mechanical QM, negligible aging, wide range of operating temperatures and small values for lateral and planar coupling compared to longitudinal coupling.
As used for transducer, it's good for single element thickness gauge probe.
We do have this material and some type of our probe use this material, such as our TS5P14T.
(5MHz, 14mm diameter, normal beam, hard protective face, dead area just is 2mm.)
