No one will be threatening any Star Fleet officers with the device, but the uaser (from "ultrasound amplification by stimulated emission of radiation," and pronounced "WAY-zer") might someday find its way into materials research laboratories.
To make his uaser, Richard Weaver, a professor of theoretical and applied mechanics at Illinois, and his colleagues mounted a number of piezoelectric auto-oscillators to a block of aluminum.
Although the uaser is not expected to have a great impact in acoustics, as coherent sound is less valuable than coherent light, there may be some use in material science.
