Medical ultrasound has been one of the most widely adopted and rapidly developing diagnosis and therapy tools today because of its non-destructive and non-ion radiative nature. Ultrasound transducers, as key components in medical ultrasound systems, have been developed for a variety of ultrasound 2D and 3D imaging with sub-millimeter to mm spatial resolution and Doppler blood flow information. Medical ultrasound imaging stems from the sonar technology, which was first developed in World War I for detecting submarines using acoustic waves with frequencies ranging between >20 kHz and 1 MHz. For a sonar transducer, a piece of piezoelectric material was used...
