Speaker that uses the non-linearity in air to create sound
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year))Student thesis
The aim of this work was to investigate theoretically and experimentally the fact that it is possible to create sound by using the nonlinearity in air. A speaker was built verifying the theory that if at least two high frequencies at high amplitude is propagating through a nonlinear medium, for example air, the difference frequency of these two is created in mid air. Measurements and simulations were performed on what the pressure distribution from a ultrasonic transducer looks like.
