Micromachined Ultrasound transducers for wide range application in Medical imaging and Non Destructive Testing

Obiettivo

Objective is to bring a major breakthrough in ultrasound transducers design and manufacturing processes with performances well beyond the standard technology of piezoelectric transducers. Based on MEMS manufacturing process, these new devices will replace existing arrays and sensors used in Ultrasound Medical Imaging and NOT, offering bandwidth over 100% with reduced losses and lower manufacturing cost. Furthermore sensors and transducers operating above 10 MHz will be achievable in a collective way resulting in a high level of yield andreliability. Benefit for EU will be in Medical diagnosis improvement, manufacturing control with perform ant miniaturized sensors, and will create employments for transducers manufacturing in EU MEMS foundries instead of actual subcontracting labour in non EUcountries.The work plan is using main outputs from than growth Promenade and the UMIC Eureka projects
