Magnetostriction method

  1. Aug 9, 2014 #1
    I don't really understand what is the need of giving feedback in the magnetostriction method to produce ultrasonic waves.

    I am thinking of just winding a single rod over a nickel rod and then connecting then connecting the 2 ends to a battery. When the current is passed,magnetic field develops and the rod vibrates and produces ultrasonic waves. Is this possible?

    I added the words "then connecting" twice. That's why this question appears lame.
