Scientists have created an audio technology that was invented in the eighties

In the 1980-ies, the inventor Alexander Graham bell was determined to create a phone that audio uses light. For this, he wanted to use the properties of the photoacoustic effect when the material absorbs the light and emits the sound wave. Unfortunately, at the time, he was not able to bring their ideas into reality due to the lack of light source need power and a sensitive enough receiver. Researchers from mit claim that they have finally managed to create such a device.

As a light source, they used a laser. He was a great option, as it is quite intense light source and allows the use as absorbing material, the water molecules that are in the air. Absorbing the laser light, these particles emit sonic waves that can be transmitted to man in the opposite corner of the room.

The head of the research group Charles Wynn explained that they used the length of the laser, which is most strongly absorbed by water — so the transmitted sound is most loud. The air does not have to be too wet.

The Technology could work even in relatively dry conditions because the air is almost always enough water, especially around people.

The location of the scientists was two ways to change the sound. The first is called photoacoustic spectroscopy — it implies rapid movement of the laser to change the pitch of the sound. Therefore, the team of researchers were able to transmit a sound volume of 60 decibels at a distance of 2.5 m. it is Noteworthy that it was only audible at a certain distance — people passing through the laser, heard nothing. The second method changed the pitch of the sound by changing the laser power.

In the future, the researchers intend to test the technology outdoors to see how wide may be the range of sound.

What do you think how people will listen to music in the future? Your bold assumption, write in the comments or at .
