Abstract

The lens effect of acoustic waves in a two-dimensional (2D) phononic crystal is studied by numerical simulation based on the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method. We calculate the phonon band structure of 2D phononic crystals, consisting of metal/ceramic cylinders placed periodically in water. The lens effect is observed for the far-field wave in phononic crystals with two-layered and graded-index structure. We compare the focal intensity and the energy transmission efficiency in these numerical experiments, and show that a novel energy-transmission device can be designed using phononic crystals.
