Furthermore, the company is also expert in the treatment of releases of gas under pressure for venting, reducing the acoustic dispersion of fluid lines and low output silencers.
Because this new mode with its acoustic dispersion allows light to be contained on small surface areas and in a broad frequency range, it has implications for research in nano-optics and photonics applications.
Such behavior is characteristic of liquids with acoustic dispersion due to changes of molecular conformation or restructuring processes (7, 8).
Remarkably, this 3-way system positions each of the drivers in such a way as to only occupy a 9-inch diameter in its baffle--and still preserve perfectly the acoustic dispersion needed from a high-performance, front stage home theater speaker.
