Paper Abstract

The tonpilz configuration is applied to a transducer operating in the megahertz frequency range. The KLM model is used to design the transducer using readily available components. The construction techniques used are the same as those applied to standard high frequency transducers. Modeled and measured pulse-echo results display a high level of agreement, but impedance and sensitivity comparisons are less promising.
