Velocity and pressure microphones composed of piezoelectric poly(γ-benzyl-α,L-glutamate) (PBLG) nanofibers were produced by adhering a single layer of PBLG film to a Mylar diaphragm. The device exhibited a sensitivity of −60 dBV/Pa in air, and both pressure and velocity response showed a broad frequency response that was primarily controlled by the stiffness of the supporting diaphragm. The pressure microphone response was ±3 dB between 200 Hz and 4 kHz when measured in a semi-anechoic chamber. Thermal stability, easy fabrication, and simple design make this single element transducer ideal for various applications including those for underwater and high temperature use.
