Shaping reverberating sound fields with an actively tunable metasurface [Engineering]

Wavefront shaping with spatial light modulators has recently motivated many studies in the field of light manipulation in diffusive media. Here, we extend this concept to acoustic waves by designing and building a binary phase-modulating spatial sound modulator (SSM). The SSM is an acoustic metasurface consisting of unit cells with two states, switchable through programmed electronics. We demonstrate in audible frequencies, and in a reverberating environment, the capability of controlling and reshaping any complex sound field. Our work will not only open avenues to study wave propagation in complex and chaotic media but also inspire applications in acoustic engineering.
