Sam Hyde, Dr James McCrone and Stuart Hatfield of The Technology Partnership plc, winner of the 2012 Innovation Award, awarded by the Institute of Physics for developing and commercialising a novel micropump based on the physics of non-linear acoustic resonance, piezoelectric materials and fluid dynamics.
TTP has been a leader for 20 years in the development of novel physics-based technologies which are incorporated into devices and products across a range of sectors.
Their micropump was developed as a solution to a problem in the manufacture of medical devices: the need for small, noiseless, high-volume pumps.
The device involves an innovative application of acoustic resonance physics.
