    Abstract

    A method of reducing the response time of an ultrasonic transducer by optimizing the driving signal is presented. The optimization is performed with all hardware in the optimization loop. The driving signal is divided into two parts, a part used to excite the transducer and a part for damping the vibration of the transducer. The latter part is optimized by using the Genetic Algorithm Toolbox of Matlab in combination of an arbitrary waveform generator, transducers and an oscilloscope, which are controlled by the Instrument Control Toolbox of Matlab. The results of the optimization show that this is an effective way of reducing the response time of the transducers. The results show an average response time reduction of approximately 25%.
