This invention relates to a device and method to remove the heat from the lens area of a transducer. This method allows for direct removal of heat from the lens of the transducer and can be used on transducers that have integrated sensor-based thermal cut off devices such as a thermocouple or thermistor. This ability to dissipate larger amount of heat allows for the design of more sensitive transducer.
