CLAIMS

1. A method for manufacturing a transmitter/receiver for
transmitting/receiving acoustic waves, which method comprises at least the following steps:
a. placing a transmitting and/or receiving layer in or on an inner
housing in a manner such that a side of the inner housing is at
least virtually sealed off by the transmitting and/or receiving
layer;
b. providing at least a first material in a space enclosed by the inner housing and the outer housing, which space is adjacent to the
transmitting and/or receiving layer;
c. providing an outer housing around the inner housing, which outer housing encloses the inner housing at least partly after provision; and
d. providing a second material between the inner housing and the
outer housing,
characterized in that, in step d, upon provision of the second material, through pouring, the second material runs in a vacuum between the inner housing and the outer housing for the purpose of manufacturing a fixed connection between the inner housing and the outer housing.
2. A method according to claim 1, characterized in that, when the second material runs between the inner housing and the outer housing, the second material has a flowing condition and then changes into a binding condition for the purpose of manufacturing a fixed connection between the inner housing and the outer housing.
3. A method according to claim 1 or 2, characterized in that step d also comprises pouring the second material into at least a part of the inner housing and then curing the second material, wherein step d is carried out after step c.
4. A method according to claim 1, 2 or 3, characterized in that, upon pouring the second material, the inner housing overflows in a manner such that the second material also runs between the inner housing and the outer housing, wherein step d is carried out after steps b and c.
5. A method according to any one of the preceding claims, characterized in that the method also comprises the following step:
e. vibrating the first material for removing polluting gases from
the first material.
6. A method according to any one of the preceding claims, characterized in that, after carrying out step b and before carrying out step d, the method further comprises the following step:
f. positioning the inner housing, the outer housing and the
transmitting and/or receiving layer relative to the top surface of the first material in a manner such that the top surface
includes an angle with the transmitting and/or receiving layer.

7. A method according to claim 6, characterized in that step f further comprises curing the first material while the top surface includes the said angle.
8. A method according to any one of the preceding claims, characterized in that the method further comprises the following step:
g. wiring the transmitting and/or receiving by means of wiring for controlling the transmitting and/or receiving layer and/or
passing on received signals from the transmitting and/or
receiving layer.
9. A method according to claim 8, characterized in that step g, prior to carrying out steps b and d, comprises providing at least one first wire, which first wire is attached to a side of the transmitting and receiving layer which is adjacent to the space enclosed by the inner housing and the outer housing and which extends through this enclosed space in a direction away from the transmitting and receiving layer as far as outside the space.
10. A method according to claim 8 or 9, characterized in that step g, prior to carrying out steps c and d, comprises providing at least one second wire, which second wire is attached to a side of the receiving and/or receiving layer located on a side facing away from the space enclosed by the inner housing and the outer housing.
11. A method according to any one of the preceding claims, characterized in that the first material comprises a resin.
12. A method according to claim 11, characterized in that the resin is an epoxy.
13. A method according to any one of the preceding claims, characterized in that the first material comprises a metal.
14. A method according to claim 12, characterized in that the metal is tungsten.
15. A method according to any one of the preceding claims, characterized in that the second material comprises a resin.
16. A method according to claim 15, characterized in that the resin is epoxy.
17. A method according to any one of the preceding claims, characterized in that the method also comprises applying a layer, for instance a lambda layer, in particular a 1A lambda layer, to the transmitting and/or receiving layer on a side of the transmitting and/or receiving layer facing away from the space enclosed by the inner housing and the outer housing.
18. A method according to any one of the preceding claims, characterized in that the transmitting and/or receiving layer comprises a piezo crystal. 19. A method according to any one of the preceding claims, characterized in that the transmitting and/or receiving layer is provided on a supporting surface prior to carrying out step a.

20. A method according to claim 19, characterized in that the
transmitting and/or receiving layer is provided on the supporting surface with the aid of a tape.
21. A method according to claim 20, characterized in that the tape has a self-adhesive surface on two sides.
22. A method according to any one of claims 19-22, characterized in that the supporting surface is removed after step b and prior to step d.
23. A method according to any one of the preceding claims, characterized in that, in step a, an open side of the inner housing is at least virtually sealed off by the transmitting and/or receiving layer.
24. A method according to any one of the preceding claims, characterized in that the inner housing has a tubular design.
25. A method according to claim 23 and 24, characterized in that the inner housing is provided with a first and second open end, wherein the first open end forms the said open side.
26. A method according to claim 25, characterized in that, in step b, through the second open end, the first material is introduced into the space enclosed by the inner housing and the outer housing, which space is adjacent to the transmitting and/or receiving layer.
27. A method according to any one of claims 24-26, characterized in that the outer housing also has a tubular design and comprises a first and second open end.
28. A method according to claims 25 and 27, characterized in that, at the second open end of the inner housing, the outer housing extends beyond the inner housing.
29. A method according to claims 17 and 28, characterized in that the layer is included in a space bounded by the outer housing and the layer.

30. A method according to any one of the preceding claims, characterized in that, in step a, the layer is, near its edges, attached to the inner housing with a third material.

31. A method according to claim 30, characterized in that the third material comprises a resin such as epoxy.
32. A method according to any one of the preceding claims, characterized in that step d is carried out after step c, step c after step b and step b after step a.
33. A method according to any one of claims 1-31, characterized in that step d is carried out after step b, step b after step c and step c after step a.

34. A method according to claim 10, characterized in that, in step c and prior to step d, the second wire is provided in a manner such that it extends further between the inner housing and the outer housing.
35. An apparatus obtained by means of use of a method according to any one of the preceding claims.
