Acoustics: A next generation microphone needs a special test chamber
I certainly hope it is not a sin to be envious of someone else's funded research work, because if it is, I have a penance coming. The University of Alabama and Tuskegee University got an NSF (National Science Foundation) grant for research into a next generation microphone that will sense more than just changes in sound pressure and they are getting a new anechoic chamber to test it in as a bonus. ScienceDaily has a write-up that focuses on the chamber, while the Tuscaloosa News has more details on the microphone research.
