Abstract
BTech proposes the design and development of a low-profile, broadband, shear-mode piezocrystal acoustic transducer for deep submergence applications. The Phase I effort considers evaluation of design variants of shear mode transducers with increased pressure operation/tolerance and tradeoffs associated with the same. Design feasibility is supported with calculations of expected performance and where possible, proof-of-principle experimentation.
