Event description

Description

If you have ever heard really loud music you will have experienced the physical force that sound can exert. But did you know that If such loud sounds are more carefully controlled then they can cause objects to become levitated?

Professor Bruce Drinkwater will demonstrate this amazing effect whilst also explaining, in basic terms, how to build your own acoustic levitation device.

We'll also be exploring questions such as can humans be levitated and discussing present and future applications of this technology, for example in levitated manufacturing production lines or remote medical procedures.

This lecture is part of FUTURES, a series of free events taking place across Bristol and Bath to celebrate European Researchers' Night on Friday 28 September. It has been organised by University of Bath, University of Bristol and Bath Spa University.
