Ultra sound

Our first tests with ultra sound have been highly successful!  The practicalities of ultra sound are less so, but here is a general idea of what is happening.

The sonic vibrations create small pockets within the substrate and heat individual sections to around 1000 F while vigorously agitating them.  This acts as a fantastic catalyst... in the lab.  The possibility of putting it into action at the farm is a completely different situation.  But we will keep on looking into the possibility.
