In transducer material characterization, quarter wave matching layer samples are often measured at higher than desired operating frequency. We describe a method for estimating both acoustic velocity and attenuation through transmission coefficient (TC) measurements of a thin layer. This method was used for characterizing a silicon-epoxy 2-2 composite layer around the quarter wavelength frequency range. The magnitude of TC for the composite agreed with prediction for a homogeneous material in the frequency range of interest. However, the measured phase showed a discontinuity (phase jump about 90°) near the quarter shear wave resonance for the epoxy
