Ultrasounds for Biological Applications and Materials Science

ULTRATEX project kick-off

Kick off meeting of our poject ULTRATEX will take place tomorrow in Madrid.

In collaboration with Polytechnic Univ. of Valencia and group SIRO, the project will take place during 2018-2021 with a budget of 695.000 euros.

This project will introduce our air-coupled ultrasonic technology to the texture characterization of food products in the fabrication line. Introduction of air-coupled ultrasound to the food industry is a promising field because this technique can guarantee non-contact, non-contamination and is, therefore, fully compatible with the highest food safety, and security standards.

Though food products use to present a very high attenuation coefficient, our high sensitivity air-coupled transducers can  provide a SNR capable to avoid this problem. The piezoelectric nature of these transducers provide them a robustness high enough to be used in industrial environments, and the wide frequency banwidth permit to use them for a wide range of applications.
