Vagus nerve stimulation serves as an approach to manage drug-resistant epilepsy. Focused ultrasound stands out as a unique tool, offering a non-invasive modality for VNS. With its excellent depth of penetration and sub-millimeter focusing capabilities in soft tissue, ultrasound allows for precise targeting of the vagus nerve without the need for...

In the past two decades, offshore wind has emerged as a new source of renewable energy. This highlights the requirement for the utilisation of larger and more efficient offshore wind turbines (OWTs). The connections used in support structures of OWTs are critical to ensure the excellent structural performance of OWFs. An alternative option is...

Under in-plane compressive load conditions, the growth of a delamination initially induced by an impact can be followed by a fast growth after a threshold level, which leads to a catastrophic failure in composite structures. To avoid reaching this critical level, it is essential to uncover the delamination size and growth pattern in real time....

The performance of the Acoustic Emission (AE) technique is significantly dependent on the sensors attached to the structural surface. Although conventional commercially AE sensors, like R15a and WSa sensors, have been extensively employed in monitoring many different structures, they are unavailable in restricted-assess areas. In contrast,...

Micromachined Ultrasonic Transducers (MUTs) are being explored as power converters in wirelessly powered biomedical implants. This paper investigates the role of mechanical support properties in piezoelectric MUTs (PMUTs) on their power conversion efficiency. For this purpose, a finite element model (FEM) of a PMUT array was developed and...

In this letter, a compact high-voltage (HV) transmit circuit for dense 2-D transducer arrays used in 3-D ultrasonic imaging systems is presented. Stringent area requirements are addressed by a unipolar pulser with embedded transmit/receive switch. Combined with a capacitive HV level shifter, it forms the ultrasonic HV...

Two-dimensional (2-D) arrays offer volumetric imaging capabilities without the need for probe translation or rotation. A sparse array with elements seeded in a tapering spiral pattern enables one-to-one connection to an ultrasound machine, thus allowing flexible transmission and reception strategies. To test the concept of sparse spiral array...

High frame rate three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound imaging would offer excellent possibilities for the accurate assessment of carotid artery diseases. This calls for a matrix transducer with a large aperture and a vast number of elements. Such a matrix transducer should be interfaced with an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) for...

Emerging non-imaging ultrasound applications, such as ultrasonic wireless power delivery to implantable devices and ultrasound neuromodulation, require wearable form factors, millisecond-range pulse durations and focal spot diameters approaching 100 μm with electronic control of its three-dimensional location. None of these are compatible...

Piezoelectric composites provide an opportunity to make robust piezoelectric sensors. These materials are based on piezoelectric ceramic powders or particles, which are dispersed in a polymer matrix. In most cases, piezoelectric composites use the same ceramic compositions as the ones used in piezoelectric ceramics. These compositions consist of...
