Abstract:

A composite transducer array comprises a piezoelectric polymer composite panel, a continuous electrode coupled to a first surface of the composite panel, and a plurality of electrically-isolated electrode segments coupled to a second surface of the composite panel. Each electrode segment is shaped as an angular segment of a circular ring. The electrode segments are arranged to define an array of concentric circular rings of electrode segments.
