Improving the manipulation of microparticles by sound

A simple but accurate theory of how sound interacts with small particles has been developed by theoretical physicists at RIKEN. This advance will help to improve the manipulation of microparticles by sound.

Researchers produce first laser ultrasound images of humans

For most people, getting an ultrasound is a relatively easy procedure: As a technician gently presses a probe against a patient's skin, sound waves generated by the probe travel through the skin, bouncing off muscle, fat, ...

Fish scattering sound waves has impact on aquaculture

Schools of fish can scatter sound waves, which has impacts on fish farming. Fisheries acoustics have been studied for over 40 years to assess biomass and optimize aquaculture applications.

Microscale rockets can travel through cellular landscapes

A new study from the lab of Thomas Mallouk shows how microscale "rockets," powered by acoustic waves and an onboard bubble motor, can be driven through 3-D landscapes of cells and particles using magnets. The research was ...
