Abstract:

A survey of applied research and development in underwater acoustic transduction in Western Europe reveals a widespread interest in piezopolymers and some potential in fiber optic aoucstic sensors. Little else in innovative transductions concepts was found. An electrical charge insertion theory and the production of thick PVF2 films may each have significant effects on piezopolymer hydrophone development. Author
