I am very interested in new and unusual uses of sound and vibration, and
the thought occurred to me: if a molecule's temperature is the result of
mechanical vibration, could an inverse frequency be applied so that the
molecule is slowed (and therefore, cooled) via distructive interference?
Could (or does) matching the molecule's vibrational frequency result in
more efficient heating?
