Abstract

Acoustic detectors were developed using a piezo ceramic compound PZT. A shape of the PZT detector was essential to obtain a high sensitivity. A detector of a spherically shaped shell structure, whose size was 50mm in diameter and 2mm thick, was fabricated. Its sensitivity was calibrated to be about 40mV/Pa at 54kHz. Using the hydrophone, acoustic signals generated by an electron-induced cascade shower in water were detected. Experimental results were compared with simulation data and confirmed a consistency in between.
