Simple ears for clever microphones: biomechanical investigation of insect ears for novel acoustic sensors

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

One of the models of insect tympanal hearing, the desert locust Schistocerca gregaria, has already been the subject of numerous studies investigating membrane mechanics over the past few years in order to better understand insect hearing. Recent advancements in Laser Doppler Vibrometry technology are now providing new tools to further investigate the mechanical properties of the locust ear, bringing engineers a step closer to designing novel biomimetic acoustic sensors with numerous potential industrial applications.
