Media Webcast on Discoveries in Acoustics

27.10.2011
Scientists will present some of the latest findings from the science of sound at a webcast press briefing at 8 a.m. PDT (11 a.m. EDT) on Monday, October 31, 2011.

The briefing will cover select topics being presented at the 162nd meeting of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) in San Diego, Calif., October 31–November 4, 2011.

Media representatives not attending the meeting are invited to participate in this live webcast.

What: Media Webcast: Notable Research from Acoustical Society Meeting

When: Monday, October 31, 2011; 8 a.m. – 9 a.m. PDT (11 a.m. – noon EDT)

Webcast Registration: http://www.aipwebcasting.com

Onsite Location: Pacific Salon 4, Town and Country Hotel, San Diego, Calif.

Panelists
• Aubrey España, Applied Physics Laboratory, University of Washington, will discuss the detection of unexploded ordnance with acoustics.
• Braxton Boren, New York University, will present how acoustic archeology reveals the true sound of Renaissance Venice.
• Lisa Heimbauer, Department of Psychology and Language Research Center, Georgia State University, will compare speech perception in a chimpanzee to that of humans.

• Andrew Piacsek, Central Washington University, will present context and final thoughts on the presentations and relay questions to the rest of the panel.

Im Focus: AI monitoring of laser welding processes - X-ray vision and eavesdropping ensure quality

With an X-ray experiment at the European Synchrotron ESRF in Grenoble (France), Empa researchers were able to demonstrate how well their real-time acoustic monitoring of laser weld seams works. With almost 90 percent reliability, they detected the formation of unwanted pores that impair the quality of weld seams. Thanks to a special evaluation method based on artificial intelligence (AI), the detection process is completed in just 70 milliseconds.

Laser welding is a process suitable for joining metals and thermoplastics. It has become particularly well established in highly automated production, for...

Im Focus: A structural light switch for magnetism

A research team from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure of Dynamics (MPSD) and the University of Oxford has managed to drive a prototypical antiferromagnet into a new magnetic state using terahertz frequency light. Their groundbreaking method produced an effect orders of magnitude larger than previously achieved, and on ultrafast time scales. The team’s work has just been published in Nature Physics.

Magnetic materials have been a mainstay in computing technology due to their ability to permanently store information in their magnetic state. Current...
