Abstract : The patent describes a microwave ultrasonic amplifier employing a piezoelectric semiconductor element fabricated with alternate amplifying and insulating sections. The insulating sections are included to periodically attenuate undesired, higher frequency, out of band phonon signals which would otherwise build up and saturate the amplifier. The coherent signals, because of their lower frequency, are not appreciably attenuated in these sections and, consequently, their amplitude is progressively increased in each amplifying section.
