Ultrasonic Non-contact Tweezers
Neurotechnology's Ultrasound Research Group also performs research & development in these areas of ultrasound technologies:
- Ultrasonic particle manipulation. Ultrasonic particle manipulation is a non-contact manipulation method that uses ultrasonic waves to trap, orient and transport small objects. Neurotechnology is developing a 3D printing/assembling technology based on ultrasonic particle manipulation.
- Ultrasonic electrostatic transducers. Ultrasonic electrostatic transducers have a wide bandwidth and are ideally suited for parametric sound systems or high-accuracy distance measurements. Neurotechnology has developed novel electrostatic transducers and their manufacturing method based on a PCB manufacturing processes.
Ultrasonic non-contact tweezers is a set of specialized ultrasound hardware and electronics solutions which has been developed for scientific and commercial uses. Currently two products are offered:
- Ultrasonic Array Controller UAC128 – a multi-channel continuous wave array controller developed by Neurotechnology. It was designed to be primarily used in ultrasonic particle manipulation systems.
- Levitator Model 2S – a plug-in-play device for demonstration of ultrasonic particle levitation.
