Ultrasonic aromatherapy diffusers tend to be slightly larger than the infrared diffuser.  An ultrasonic diffuser can act as both a humidifier and diffuser helping to keep the humidity level of the room at a comfortable level that you are accustomed to no matter where you may be.  This type of diffuser uses sound waves to break the oils into tiny particles that float and disperse throughout the room.
