Paper Abstract

The sensitivity of some resonant and broadband acoustic emission (AE) sensors made of piezoelectric monocrystalline quartz and lithium niobate was investigated under hydrostatic pressures ranging from atmospheric to 1 GPa. Ultrasonic pulses of the 500 kHz frequency generated by an impulse laser were used as the standard AE signals. It was established that the sensitivity of all tested sensors was decreasing with pressure. When measured in dBs the sensitivity of each sensor can be described with a linear function of pressure.
