Big Sound from Nanoengineered Speakers

Oct. 27, 2016

At a concert, bigger is better when it comes to amplifiers and speakers, but research in CU Boulder mechanical engineering professor Victor Bright's Multidisciplinary Engineering Micro-Systems Group is demonstrating that small speakers can produce big sound too. How small? Fewer than 300 atoms thick. Listen to a clip of music...
