Piezoelectric Single Crystals for Underwater Sonar Transducers

Piezoelectric Single Crystals for Underwater Sonar Transducers

CTS Corporation (NYSE: CTS) has published a white paper presenting the advantages of piezoelectric single crystals for underwater sonar transducers. PIN-/PMN-PT piezoelectric single crystals are among the most important technological advancements for underwater acoustics in recent years.

Increased Sensitivity and Wider Bandwidth
CTS PMN-PT and PIN-PMN-PT single crystal piezoelectric materials provide increased sensitivity and wider bandwidth for underwater transducers. Thus, the performance marks of underwater transducers are significantly higher when manufactured with piezoelectric single crystal, compared to underwater transducers with the use of standard PZT. Therefore, CTS piezoelectric single crystals have the potential to provide the performance breakthrough for the next generation of underwater sonar transducers.

Smaller Form Factor and System Level Advantages
This CTS white paper is based on the study of peer-reviewed scientific research papers. Scientific research data proves that smaller form factor transducers can be achieved when PIN-/PMN-PT single crystals are utilized. This is due to the higher piezoelectric performance magnitude of PIN-/PMN-PT single crystals, thereby making it possible to decrease the number of piezoelectric elements necessary. As a result, higher performance can be achieved at lower power consumption levels. Lower power consumption also helps increase the battery life of the overall sonar system upon deployment. Once the sonar system is deployed, increased battery performance not only provides longer active life for the system, but also improves deployment cycles, maintenance time and cost.To learn more, download the full CTS white paper, “Next Generation Underwater Sonar Transducers” from the CTS resource center at
