Abstract : The patent describes a transducer having a cylindrically shaped arrangement of alternating ferroelectric elements and loading members and providing a continuous broadband capability. By the transducer's discrete dimensioning, it simultaneously functions in the cavity resonance mode, the circumferential resonance mode and the bending resonance mode to create the broadband operating characteristics. Because of the configuration and dimensioning, these three resonance modes are located contiguously in two octaves in the low frequency spectrum.
