Ultrasonic transducer with very short pulse

We have developed a very broadband ultrasonic transducer (pulse length up to 20 ns) and are now searching for applications, which can not be solved satisfying by using traditional transducers.

This kind of transducer is much cheaper than traditional construction and his pulse answer is very repeatable.
It is possible to use the idea of this transducer to make transducers with longer pulses too.

Re: Ultrasonic transducer with very short pulse
This kind of transducer can be used for detecting very
small cracks in materials and for measuring thet
hickness of thin walls or layers.

Which mean frequency has the transducer? Which bandwidth? Is it an immersion transducer or a contact transducer? For which acoustic impedance is it adapted?

: Which mean frequency has the transducer? Which bandwidth? Is it an immersion transducer or a contact transducer? For which acoustic impedance is it adapted?

It is possible to make this transducer with mean frequency from at least 1 MHz (but there is no reason, why it couldn´t be even lower), the highest frequency that we achieved was 22 MHz.
The standard version that we use for our fingerprint devices has the mean frequency of about 12 MHz and 3 dB bandwith of 4-20 MHz.

We are using them in water, but it is possible to use them also in contact.

You shoud see the information on the following page: http://www.optel.com.pl/manual/english/transd.htm

We are not ready with the development and are also interesting in finding partners, interested in cooperation, using, marketing and so on of this novel kind of transducer.

mances of portable X-Ray sets. Despite having managed to halve the weight of similar portable X-Ray generators available on the market (while continuing to provide the same power output), the SITEX CPSERIES generators feature a shutter, a laser pointer, a beryllium window, an aluminum filter and two integrated diaphragms (customized sizes are available upon request). Without compromising the robustness and reliability for which ICM products are renowned, the small size and light weight of the SITEX CPSERIES will radically change the way that you perform your RT inspections. And you will see a positive impact in terms of both quality and return on investment (ROI).
