Instead of using excitation potentials, one uses a transducer to modify the spoken word into ELF audiograms that are then superimposed on the pulse modulated microwave beam.

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standard MC defines a transducer as "a device which provides a usable output in response to a specific measurand" (Instrument Society of America, ).

In conclusion, micromachining techniques have been developed and systematically applied in all key steps in the fabrication of a high-frequency ultrasonic array transducer.

Piezoelectric micromachined ultrasound transducers (PMUTs), diaphragm-like thin film flexural transducers typically formed on silicon substrates, are a potential solution for integrated transducer ://   A short pulse (10 us) of acoustic energy is emitted by a sonar transducer (1 to 5 MHz).

As the sound pulse spreads away from the transducer it insonifies any suspended material in the water column. This scatters the sound energy, reflecting some of it back towards the sonar transducer, which also acts as a sound (ABS).

The basic principles of ultrasound generation can be found in many text books (e.g. [25, 26]).Figure 1 illustrates a simple case of how ultrasound waves can be generated by a piezoelectric plate that has metal electrodes on both its front and back surfaces.
