Acoustics: Piezoelectric Fibers for Conformal Acoustics (Adv. Mater. 39/2012)
Ultrasound transducers have many important applications in medical, industrial, and environmental settings. On page 5327, Yoel Fink and co-workers report the realization of large-active-area piezoelectric fibers, which can be woven into extended and flexible ultrasound transducing fabrics. The back cover depicts a curved grid of piezoelectric fibers, four of which are actuated and emitting a focused acoustic wave.
