- Acoustic Levitator Kit
- Includes an L298N Dual Motor Drive Board
- Uses acoustic waves
- Lets liquids float in the air
- Enables you to study container-less substances
The Acoustic Levitator Kit has the potential to enable novel studies due to its ability to hold a wide variety of substances against gravity under container-less conditions.
It has found application in spectroscopy, chemistry, and the study of organisms in microgravity. Current levitators are constructed using Langevin horns that need to be manufactured to high tolerance with carefully matched resonant frequencies. This resonance condition is hard to maintain as their temperature changes due to transduction heating.
It uses acoustic waves to hold in mid-air samples such as water, ants or tiny electric components. This technology has been previously restricted to a couple of research labs but now you can make it at your home.
In addition, Langevin horns are required to operate at high voltages (>100 V) which may cause problems in challenging experimental environments.
