Micromachined ultrasonic transducers are gaining wide acceptance because of the use of silicon micromachining for their manufacture.  This also enables capabilities of these transducers that outperform piezoelectric transducers and enable configurations that are practically impossible otherwise.  This book teaches the principles of operations of micromachined ultrasonic transducers.  The theory of their operation and the technology of their manufacturing will be discussed and compared to that of traditional piezoelectric transducers.  Specific to the field of ultrasonic transducers, Micromachined Ultrasonic Transducers  is directed at the communities that use ultrasound in the frequency range of kHz to many MHz for use in airborne and immersion applications.
