Morgan Electro Ceramics (MEC) introduces its new piezoelectric composites designed to provide increased acoustic performance for a variety of military and commercial sonar receiver applications. MEC’s piezoelectric composite materials reduce cross coupling that often occurs between different modes in the ceramic of conventional transducers. This advance enables sonar components to respond in a more precise and predictable manner, according to the company. Components manufactured with these new composite materials can reduce spurious activity, offering higher transmit/receive efficiency. Piezocomposite components also provide lower acoustic impedance and improved transducer bandwidth compared to conventional piezoelectric ceramics alone.
