Investigations into the field characteristics of an air-coupled ultrasonic capacitance transducer have been performed for a range of transducer configurations. The field of a 2-MHz bandwidth silicon backplate capacitance transducer has been scanned in air using a l-mm-diam miniature detector at frequencies of up to 1.5 MHz. The radiated peak sound-pressure field is compared to theory based on a plane piston approach for various driving signals, namely pulsed and tone burst excitation. Aperture modifications, such as an annulus and a zone plate, have also been investigated and the devices have been shown to behave as predicted by theory. (C) 1997 Acoustical Society of America.
