A Second-Order Ambisonics Device Using Velocity Transducers
The second-order components of a spherical harmonics expansion of the sound pressure field can be obtained by means of velocity transducers based on hot-wire anemometry. Such velocity transducers are small compared to acoustic wavelengths and can be mounted on a tiny rigid bar only a few millimeters wide, thereby reducing the effects of wave diffraction and acoustic shadows. Numeric simulations and experimental tests using two Microflown pressure-velocity transducers validate the proposed approach.
