It’s found in the basic building blocks of matter and in the vast expanses of the universe, in flowers, in butterflies and in our own bodies: symmetry is deeply embedded in nature. Perfect symmetry, however, is rare, and it is often precisely the little differences that offer the key advantage for our existence. To understand this phenomenon, researchers are studying such topics as antimatter, the human brain, or the development of flatworms.

Ultrasound-Holography for Particle Manipulation

Holograms for acoustics, which were discovered by rsearchers from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Stuttgart, may find various applications. Amongst others they can be used to arrange and move particels – or even to levitate them in air.

Sound can now be structured in three dimensions. Researchers from the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems and the University of Stuttgart have found a way of generating acoustic holograms, which could improve ultrasound diagnostics and material testing. The holograms can also be used to move and manipulate particles.
