© 2020 - IOS Press and the authors. All rights reserved.In this paper, a new electromagnetic acoustic resonance (EMAR) transducer is proposed for precise thickness measurement in specimen. The new EMAR is composed of a mirror symmetric coil (MSC) and a pair of Nd-Fe-B permanent magnets with the different polarity for enhancing the generation and detection of resonant signals. Firstly, a finite element model was established to simulate the distributions of Lorentz force produced by new EMAR and the resonant process of shear waves. Furthermore, the relationship between the frequency response characteristic of the new EMAR and the common EMAR were explored. Finally, to verify the performance of the EMAR, several experiments were performed. Compared with the common EMAR transducer, the resonant amplitude of the new EMAR transducer was increased by 121.74% and the signal-to-noise ratio was increased by 28.35%, and the resonance frequency interval of the new EMAR was twice that of the common mode in the frequency domain simulation experiment, this advantage effectively reduced the error rate of measurement. The results show that the new EMAR transducer with mirror coil structure has higher accuracy in thickness detection of specimens.
