The force field could be applied by manipulating the matrix B: B = [0.05,0; 0, 0.05] for no force field, [0,0.05; -0.05, 0] for clockwise force field, and [0, -0.05; 0.05,0] for anticlockwise force field.
They showed three shapes of acoustic force field work; one resembling a pair of tweezers, a vortex that sucks objects in and a "cage" that surrounds them.
The team created three different types of "acoustic force fields" to work as a tractor beam for different applications, including a force field that works like a tweezer, a vortex and "a high-intensity cage that surrounds the objects and holds them in place from all directions."
In a new paper, published this week in the journal Nature Communications, scientists detailed three acoustic force fields shapes that can be used to trap and move tiny objects.
They can also surround objects with 'virtual fixtures,' essentially force fields that constrain spatial motion.
