Help! How to design air ultrasonic transducer

Dear colleagues
Our project need to design air ultrasonic transducer( 50KHz, wide bandwidth). But I do not have experience of it. So need your help.
Do you know any book introduce the principle of making transducer and step by step teaching how to make a PZT transducer?
Or any material about it that can be download from web-site?

Thanks
Wang Yi

Dear Mr. Wang Yi,
at our page http://www.ibmt.fhg.de/ibmt3sensorfertigungsheets_e.html you will get some information about our range of high-bandwidth airborne ultrasonic transducers. If you will build up airborne transducers based on PZT you will receive either an high-sensitive smallband transducers (when the piezoceramic is used in banding mode) or a very insensitive broadband transducers with high electric impedance (when the piezoceramic is used in thickness mode and it is highly damped). Only whith specialized designs you can reach a sensitive AND broadband PZT-transducer.
Alternative technologies are using piezocomposite materials or using the electrostatic principle (POLAROID-transducer).
Our broadband PZT transducers are based on several special patents, thus we could offer you a project for matching this technology to the desired frequency of 50 kHz (which bandwidth do you need?).
For basic informations on ultrasonic transducer design see the standard book "Material Testing by Ultrasound" of Krautkrämer (Krautkramer).

Best regards,

Dipl.-Ing. Martin Heinz.

l - as well as oil and gas transportation industry. The sensor system is designed for permanent monitoring or periodic inspection tasks. Sensors are available for different AE-frequency ranges optimized for corrosion and fatigue crack detection and other applications. The ISAFE 3 sensor system consists of an AE-sensor (model ISAS3) certified according to ATEX/IEC for installation in zone 0, gas group IIC, IP68, 20 to +60 °C, and a signal isolator (model SISO3) certified for installation in zone 2. An ISAS3 sensor can be mounted in atmosphere or submerged, e.g. in water or crude oil. It is supported by mounting tools for temporary (magnets) or permanent (welded) installation. ISAFE3 supports automatic sensor coupling test and can be used with any AE signal processor supporting 28V supply at 90 mA peak, e.g. Vallen Systeme ASIP-2/A.
