    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Monajatipour, Fahimeh (Author) ; Amjadi, Ahmad (Supervisor)
    Eyesight is one of the most important tools for humans to communicate with environment and consequently, blindness or poor eyesight results in unsatisfactory effect on life quality. Owing to the importance of the sense and to assist to the patients, this thesis aims to design and assemble cybernetic glasses using ultrasound waves. To this end, firstly, the notion of waves focusing on ultrasound waves is described and reactions of human hearing system to the waves are studied. Then, the transducers as a key device are introduced. Afterward, bat sense system to communicate with environment which is based ultrasound waves is described. Next, attenuation effects on ultrasound wave pressures are...

    Kidney stone disease is one of the diseases that a large number of people experience each year.A Common method for the treatment of kidney stone is the use of acoustic waves, which have attracted the attention of doctors in recent decades. Because of the different structure of kidney stones, the waves transmitted to break these stones are usually performed at different frequencies. Most kidney stones are calcium that can be broken down by using acoustic wave frequencies in the range of 40-20 KHz. Most available lithotripters for the treatment of percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) are two types: Pneumatic and piezoelectric lithotripters. The lithotripter in this thesis is a piezoelectric...
