Figure 8: (a) A laser-heated sample in the aerodynamic levitator chamber. The chamber totally encloses the X-ray beam to enable a class I system operation despite containing an embedded class IV laser. (b) An acoustic levitator, comprising of two transducers (blue) with a camera focused on the levitated droplet and an area detector in the background.
