title = "Temperature evaluation of soft and hard PZT transducers for ultrasonic",
abstract = "This paper reports a comparison of soft and hard piezoceramic transducer materials used for ultrasonic particle trapping in a microfluidic bioanalytical platform. The investigation is made with the objective to obtain high acoustic forces with a minimum of temperature increase. Themperature is a critical parameter for bioassays and most often need to be kept below a certain level to allow handling of e.g. temperature sensitive proteins. The main conclusion in this paper is that it is possible to get efficieint trapping with a temperature increase of only a few degrees using a hard type III transducer material.",
