Abstract A piezoelectric composite transducer was developed in this study to improve the bandwidth and beamwidth of the high-frequency transducer. The piezocomposite was designed as arc-shaped to expand the beamwidth, and the matching layer technique was adopted to increase the bandwidth. The directivity function was obtained by the acoustic field theory. The parameters of the matching layer were also calculated using the quarter-wavelength model. Then, a novel preparation process of arc 1–3 piezoelectric composite was given in detail. Finally, the arc 1–3 piezocomposite and transducer were prepared and tested. The bandwidth and beamwidth of the transducer reach 100 kHz and 123°, respectively. Experimental results show that the designed transducer realizes the aims of broadband and wide-beam.
