Abstract:

This work proposes to address the capability gap for low frequency, low power transducers in a small form factor. We propose to use newly evaluated resonance modes of single crystal piezoelectrics that provide savings of over 75% in transducer volume. The program will evaluate the shear mode material and be used in comparison with modeling and a prototype device to show operation below 100 Hz.
