Our increased performance textured piezoceramics with single crystal-like properties enable transducer designs to operate at high stress and field limits in a compact form factor, targeting unconventional applications including low frequency/high power projectors, hydrophones, and sensors that can achieve source levels and operational bandwidth that exceed those achievable by conventional PZT ceramics.
