Insight into the spinning-induced scattering of sound could help create next-generation acoustic devices using new phonon modes.
Women in Data Science (WiDS) is like the Global Women's March for analytics; it's a phenomenon too big for just one city. WiDS is the largest data science conference on Earth—taking place in over 50 countries, it has attained more than 100,000 attendees and is tagged as a global movement. The annual conference aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide—regardless of gender—and support women in the field. This year's WiDS conference was held at Stanford University with more than 100 regional institutions all over the world participating, including KAUST.
Tiny loudspeakers can efficiently produce low-frequency sounds due to effects similar to the quantum physics governing atoms.
A loudspeaker design could allow small devices to produce powerful low-frequency sounds.
Prof. Ying Wu received the 2017 Phononics Young Investigator Award as the Phononics community gathered in Changsha, China, for the 4th International Conference on Phononic Crystal/Metamaterials, Phonon Transport/Coupling, and Topological Phononics, on June 4-9 2017.
Carefully designed crystal structures can now be tuned to control how they transmit acoustic waves.
