Title
(EN) IMPROVED COUPLING OF ACOUSTIC WINDOW AND LENS FOR MEDICAL ULTRASOUND TRANSDUCERS AND METHOD FOR THE MANUFACTURE THEREOF
(FR) AMELIORATION DU COUPLAGE D'UNE FENETRE OU D'UNE LENTILLE ACOUSTIQUE DE TRANSDUCTEUR A ULTRASONS A USAGE MEDICAL ET PROCEDE DE FABRICATION ASSOCIE
Abstract
(EN)
A method and structure for improving the coupling of an acoustic window or lens to a RFI shield by modifying the surface of the shield to promote adhesion. The surface of the shield can be chemically modified with an epoxy and/or mechanically modified by creating an unsmooth top surface.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur un procédé et une structure d'amélioration du couplage entre une fenêtre ou une lentille acoustique et un blindage contre les interférences dues aux fréquences radio, consistant à modifier la surface du blindage pour en améliorer l'adhérence. La surface du blindage peut être modifiée par voie chimique à l'aide d'une résine époxyde et/ou mécaniquement en créant une surface dépolie.
