Brent J Bolleman, Lorne A Whitehead: Porous gas reservoir electrostatic transducer. The University of British Columbia, Oyen Wiggs Green & Mutala, October 28, 1997: US05682075 (64 worldwide citation)

An electrostatic transducer in which a plurality of perforated sheets are arranged adjacent one another in a stack. A gas-filled gap separates each adjacent pair of sheets. Conductive surfaces on each sheet impose an electric field within the respective gaps. A flexible positioning mechanism dispose ...
