Acoustic Nanofilm - for sonic imaging



Just a clip about another type of film - Acoustic Nanofilm - that we developed and named "Roswellite" for use in microphones that record loud music. Customers helped playfully name this successful material due to its prized extreme lightness and strength. Roswellite replaced an obsolete fragile and lousy foil material that had fallen from use, and now has been adopted and commercialized by Shure, Inc., the world's largest microphone manufacturer.

I think of microphones and lenses and film in about the same category: the "front end" of the capture process, that which sets the tone for all processes that come after it, and influences how we see, or in this case, hear, and devise ways to express what we want to do artistically, or just for the fun of it.
