Seminar: Acousto-optic sensing of acoustic fields

Wed 16th March 13:00 – 14:00. This seminar will be held on Teams and shown in in Newton G14. Abstract The characterization of sound fields over space is fundamental in acoustics. Yet, the acquisition of sound fields using conventional electromechanical transducers is challenging due to the high sampling requirements. In this study, we introduce an

Seminar: Modelling the Perception of Percussive Low Frequency Instruments in Rooms

Wed 9th March 13:00 – 14:00 This seminar will be streamed via Teams – click here to join. Abstract The effects of room modes on audio reproduction are well reported and researched, however a considerable amount of work typically focuses on smaller acoustic environments, such as listening rooms and control rooms. Larger listening spaces, such

Seminar: Sabine and his organ pipes – the dawn of room acoustics

Wed 23rd Feb 13:00 – 14:00 The seminar will take place in Newton building room 233, and will also be streamed via Teams. Afterwards, there will be an opportunity to experience the experiment in our small reverberation chamber (subject to demand).
