Appliance of iBULe single crystal to naval SONAR for broad bandwidth & high power innovation

09 May 2023
DisTec Theatre
Naval forces can maintain a competitive edge over their adversaries by having access to superior detection capabilities and an increased range of options for naval combat operations. In this session, iBULe Photonics discuss how they successively grew and upgraded the alternative to PZT ceramic: piezoelectric single crystal. This groundbreaking material can greatly improve the detection bandwidth and sensitivity of the SONAR system while achieving miniaturization of the SONAR sensor, allowing higher survivability for naval vessels but also providing strategic superiority in naval warfare.
