  • Publication number: 20190120958
    Abstract: A transducer is provided, which includes an oscillator and a broadbanded matching circuit. In the oscillator, a peak frequency corresponding to a peak transmission sensitivity may separate from a center frequency in a given bandwidth, and a transmission sensitivity may increase as a frequency separates from the peak frequency with respect to the center frequency. The broadbanded matching circuit may be configured to perform an impedance matching so that the transmission sensitivity of the oscillator at the peak frequency becomes substantially equal to the transmission sensitivity of the oscillator at the center frequency.
