BELLEFONTE, Pa., March 6, 2015 – Piezo Kinetics Inc., a leading manufacturer of small and specialty piezoelectric ceramic elements and assemblies, has manufactured and shipped their first 1-3 composites.
1-3 composites provide some advantages over bulk ceramics such as: a lower acoustic impedance, a large bandwidth and lower mechanical Q, and higher coupling coefficient. Typical applications for 1-3 composites include:
- Medical Diagnostic Ultrasound
- Non Destructive Testing NDT
- SONAR, mostly defense oriented for high performance
- Flow Control and Air Ultrasound
