Abstract

Bismuth titanate-lithium niobate based ultrasonic transducers have been fabricated using a sol-gel spray-on deposition technique. These transducers were then tested to determine their potential as high temperature ultrasonic transducers. Fabricated transducers were capable of operating to 1000°C in pulse-echo mode; however, the exposure to such extreme temperatures appears to be destructive to the transducers.
