The didjeridu, or yidaki, is a simple tube about 1.5 m long, played with the lips, as in a tuba, but mostly producing just a tonal, rhythmic drone sound. The acoustic impedance spectra of performers' vocal tracts were measured while they played and compared with the radiated sound spectra. When the tongue is close to the hard palate, the vocal tract(More)
The Australian didgeridoo (or yidaki in the Yolngu language of northern Australia) is a simple musical instrument that, at the lips of an experienced player, is capable of a spectacular variety of timbres--considerably greater than those that can be coaxed from orchestral instruments, for example. To understand this phenomenon, we simultaneously measured(More)
Traditional didjeridus have a broad range of bore geometries with many details not immediately apparent to a player, and are therefore suitable for examining the relationship between perceived quality and physical properties. Seven experienced players assessed the overall playing quality of 38 didjeridus that spanned a wide range of quality, pitch, and(More)
IN THE MIDST OF THE EPITAXIAL CIRCUITRY REVOLUTION IN SILICON TECHNOLOGY, WE LOOK AHEAD TO THE NEXT PARADIGM SHIFT: effective use of the third dimension - in particular, its combination with epitaxial technology. We perform ab initio calculations of atomically thin epitaxial bilayers in silicon, investigating the fundamental electronic properties of(More)
Atomic-scale understanding of phosphorus donor wave functions underpins the design and optimisation of silicon based quantum devices. The accuracy of large-scale theoretical methods to compute donor wave functions is dependent on descriptions of central-cell corrections, which are empirically fitted to match experimental binding energies, or other(More)
Atomistic tight-binding (TB) simulations are performed to calculate the Stark shift of the hyperfine coupling for a single arsenic (As) donor in silicon (Si). The role of the central-cell correction is studied by implementing both the static and the non-static dielectric screenings of the donor potential, and by including the effect of the lattice strain(More)
