  • Patent number: 10466353
    Abstract: A leaky-wave antenna for fluid environments includes a waveguide cavity defined by a waveguide wall. The waveguide cavity is filled with a waveguide fluid. The waveguide walls are made of either an anisotropic material that utilize one of orthotropic stiffness of the anisotropic material to control mode conversion, a band gap material to approximate an acoustically rigid boundary, and a combination of the two materials.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: September 21, 2017
    Date of Patent: November 5, 2019
    Assignee: The Government of the United States of America, as represented by the Secretary of the Navy

  • Publication number: 20190035374
    Abstract: A device for use in a medium comprising a medium vibro-acoustic impedance. The device includes an elastic material including a plurality of unit cells. The plurality of unit cells includes a first unit cell. The first unit cell includes a first unit-cell joint comprising a first unit-cell joint wall defining a first joint central void, a first unit-cell joint inclusion located in the first joint central void, and at least two first unit-cell arms connected to and extending away from the first unit-cell joint. The elastic material includes an elastic-material vibro-acoustic impedance. The elastic-material vibro-acoustic impedance and the medium vibro-acoustic impedance are sufficiently vibro-acoustically impedance-matched to couple time-varying, propagating vibro-acoustic fields between said elastic material and the medium.
