dc.description.abstract <p>A spherically focused no mirrors capacitive-film, air-coupled ultrasonic transducer, constructed using a spherically deformed backplate and metalized polymer film, has been designed, fabricated, and its performance characterized. A 1 cm diameter device has a center frequency of 805 kHz and a 6 dB bandwidth of 760 kHz. Comparisons of field strength in the focal zone with theoretical calculations for a spherically focused piston show that the device achieves diffraction-limited focusing. The nominal focal point of 25 mm lies within 0.01 mm of the calculated value for this device.</p>
