Khuri-Yakub Ultrasonics group

Main content start


Our research focuses on the development and applications of capacitive micromachined ultrasound transducers, or CMUTs. Piezoelectric transducers have long dominated ultrasonic transducer technology, but CMUTs have recently emerged as an alternative offering advantages such as wide bandwidth, ease of fabricating large arrays, and potential for integration with supporting electronic circuits. Applications of CMUT technology include chemical sensors, medical imaging, therapeutics, and air-coupled ultrasound.
