High Performance Single Crystal Composite Development

By maintaining optimal resonator dimensions and minimizing clamping effects, near ideal electro-mechanical coupling can be achieved in composites. While our efforts in composites are development in nature, we are investigating manufacturing 1-3 and 2-2 composites from less than 100 kHz to greater than 20 kHz. 

Single crystal composites may benefit many applications, including SONAR, medical ultrasound, and non-destructive testing.  

Advantages of single crystal composites include:

  • 50% increase in coupling over bulk plates yields bandwidths up to 3 octaves
  • Significant cost savings in system electronics as transducers perform multiple functions

Please contact us to learn more about how the advantages of single crystal materials in composites.
