Bubbles: sensors for the micro world

Abstract:

It has been proposed that coated gas microbubbles, currently used as ultrasound contrast agents could also be used as microscale sensors due to the sensitivity of their acoustic response to changes in their environment. However, their behaviour is not fully understood and there remains considerable scope for improving their characterisation. The aim of this thesis is to improve the theoretical description of microbubble dynamics under ultrasound excitation with the ultimate aim of assessin...
