An acoustic array driven with a designed set of localized-wave (LW) solutions of the scalar-wave equation generates a robust, well-behaved, transient pencil beam of ultrasound in water. The performance of the LW-pulse-driven array theoretically and experimentally exceeds a tenfold improvement over related continuous-wave excitations of the same array.
