In cooperation with SEAS, Claus Futtrup is proud to present this scientific article, which was co-authored with Dr. Jeff Candy, PhD.
The article is titled "An Added-Mass Measurement Technique for Transducer Parameter Estimation" and is published in the Journal of the Audio Engineering Society, December 2017.
This paper introduces a novel measurement procedure, where a total of three impedance measurements conducted in free-air makes it possible to extract the lumped parameters of the transducer, including viscoelasticity. Jeff and Claus spent the better part of two years and it was condensed into the present paper around March 2017, first submitted to the AES in April 2017.

Have fun, and here at SEAS we wish you a happy New Year.
13. November: We welcome a recently hired engineer to our R&D Department and hereby introduce Jorge as part of our team:
My name is Jorge Lopez and I am very glad to be part of the SEAS family. I am a telecommunication engineer specialized in sound and image from the University of Alicante in Spain. Although I attended several subjects related to acoustic sciences during my bachelor studies, it was thanks to my thesis on Distributed Mode Loudspeakers that I became fascinated by the engineering behind sound reproduction. Taking advantage of the academic momentum back then I presented a poster at the 2010 AES convention in London and later that year I enrolled into a master’s program in telecommunication and industrial research. As part of my master studies I carried out my master thesis at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) where I researched the suitability of different psychoacoustic bass algorithms for low-frequency enhancement in small loudspeakers. Once I completed my studies I moved to Asia where I worked as a transducer engineer in one of the leading companies in the audio industry worldwide.
I am very excited about this new career path that opens ahead here at SEAS. I am looking forward to sharing and making use of my engineering capabilities and expertise with the team while I learn from their passion for providing superb sound reproduction systems.
In my leisure time I enjoy outdoors activities such as hiking, scouting or skiing, as well as other sports and of course discovering new places and cultures to learn from.
