Jones. I would like to thank my advisors, Dr. Mark Sheplak and Dr. Toshikazu Nishida, for giving me some freedom in my research, while constantly pushing me to learn subjects until I own them. Their ideas and encouragement made this research possible. I would also like to thank Dr. Louis Cattafesta for his guidance and support throughout my research. Additionally, I am deeply indebted to all of my fellow students in the Interdisciplinary Microsystems Group, for their support and friendship. Special thanks go to my family for always encouraging me to pursue my interests and for making that pursuit possible. Finally I would like to thank my fiancé, Megan Elizabeth Elliott, for her constant love and support. v TABLE OF CONTENTS page ACKNOWLEDGMENTS ................................................................................................. iv LIST OF FIGURES .......................................................................................................... vii ABSTRACT...................................................................................................................... xii CHAPTERS 1 INTRODUCTION...........................................................................................................1 Passive Acoustic Liners ...................
