trans·duc·er

 (trăns-do͞o′sər, -dyo͞o′-, trănz-)
n.
1. Physics A substance or device, such as a piezoelectric crystal, microphone, or photoelectric cell, that converts input energy of one form into output energy of another.
2. Biology Something, such as a receptor in a cell membrane, that transmits a signal within a cell or from the exterior of a cell to its interior.

[From Latin trānsdūcere, to transfer : trāns-, trans- + dūcere, to lead; see deuk- in Indo-European roots.]

transducer

(trænzˈdjuːsə)
n
(Electronics) any device, such as a microphone or electric motor, that converts one form of energy into another
[C20: from Latin transducere to lead across, from trans- + ducere to lead]

trans•duc•er

(trænsˈdu sər, -ˈdyu-, trænz-)

n.
a device, as a microphone, that converts a signal from one form of energy to another.

trans·duc·er

(trăns-do͞o′sər)
A device that converts one type of energy into another. For example, the transducer in a microphone converts sound waves into electric impulses, while the transducer in a loudspeaker converts electrical impulses into sound waves.

transducer

A device that converts one kind of wave signal into another.

Various types of coupling to the ultrasonic transducer were used: face-to-face, face-to-back (device mounted on an Aluminum plate), face-to-wedge (device mounted on a polymer-wedge made from polymethyl-methacrylate, PMMA), with an inclination of the wedge of 40[degrees] with respect to the horizontal base).
It is piezo ceramic technology, however, that approaches the quality of being a "magic bullet," in its ability to be a capacitor, a generator of electricity, an ultrasonic transducer, or an actuator with finely controlled motion.
The objectives of this research were to 1) determine applicable ultrasonic transducer frequencies, coupling methods, configurations, and placements for wave speed monitoring and web defect detection within an extrusion process; 2) quantify the effects of temperature on ultrasonic parameters; and 3) develop a prototype ultrasonic inspection system for a full-size extrusion line.
