We are moving forward with the setup for a more consistent fabrication of the joint-type transducer. Our second fabrication device is now operational. Tibi and Ivan are in charge. We already made one transducer.

 At the same time, we are taking notes and designing a semi-automated fabrication device. Daniel is in charge with 3D modeling. Yassine might also help. Moreover, Jonathan contributed with two used fiber splicers, which can be used to fabricate the constriction transducer. We hope to have one ready soon to be tested by James, along with the joint-type transducer. 

The optical fiber coating process has been revised by Tibi. A few fibers have been coated on July 27th and are now ready for being assembled into transducers. See picture album. 

Jonathan is finishing the design of the piezo controller. The piezos have been received, we are still waiting for the voltage converters before we can assemble everything.
