Development of acoustic levitation systems

Abstract

The main objective of this research project is to develop new kinds of acoustic levitation systems, with the purpose of levitating and transporting the levitated object. The development of acoustic levitators will be carried out using the Finite Element Method, which will be applied to simulate the dynamic behavior of ultrasonic transducers and to calculate the acoustic radiation force that acts on the levitated object. In this project, different types of acoustic levitation systems will be developed. One of the levitators to be developed is called single-axis levitator and basically consists of a circular transducer and a reflector. The single-acoustic levitators will be used by other researchers, which will apply the acoustic levitation technique in X-ray scattering experiments, study of pharmaceutical systems, and in experiments with synchrotron radiation. During this project, it will also be developed acoustic levitators based on 40 kHz multi-element transducers and a levitation system to levitate, transport, and merge liquid drops in a controlled manner.
