Content
The Physics of Bubbles course treats the physics of single bubble and describes the behavior of multiple bubbles and bubble clouds. The course treats the forces on bubbles, the acoustics of bubbles and bubble clouds, microstreaming and jets due to bubble oscillation, cavitation and bubble collapse. The course includes lectures on the use of bubbles in medical imaging and in molecular imaging with ultrasound. Also therapeutic applications of bubbles are discussed, along with bubbles in process technology and bubble formation and bubble dynamics in microfluidic devices and nanotechnology.
