Tunable sound transmission shapes up

The ability to control fine-scale acoustic waves known as phonons could lead to new sensing and surgery technologies, or even materials that are invisible to sonar. This pursuit led researchers at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia, to describe new phononic crystals whose properties can be tuned to control the propagation of different frequencies of phonons.
