Supporting STEM Education in Northern New Mexico
A conversation with Dr. Vamshi Chillara of the Lab's Acoustics and Sensors Team about the ACCOBeam and how technological innovations using sound are changing what we can see.
Interested in how current research at Los Alamos is improving biomedical imaging and long-range undersea communications? Are you curious about innovations using sound wave collimation to “see” further and more clearly into materials including the human body and bone, cement, even 9 feet of rock? At the Lab, researchers are addressing these questions right now with the ACCOBeam, a 2018 finalist for the R&D 100 Awards. Capable of providing high resolution imaging through extremely attenuating materials, including rock formations and drilling mud, the ACCOBeam’s many potential applications are set to revolutionize how we view our selves and the world around us.
The Bradbury Science Museum Association supports and inspires learners of all ages in Northern New Mexico and beyond through STEM Education.
