Bubble Acoustics:

from whales to other worlds

Presentation By

Timothy Leighton

Wednesday 7 October 2015 at 7.00pm

Location: University of Hertfordshire, Prince Edward Hall

College Lane Campus, Hatfield AL10 9AB

Gas bubbles in liquids have an extraordinary ability to interact with sound fields. Bubbles generate the song of a babbling brook and ocean sounds that help us understand the global carbon budget. Bubbles activated by ultrasound can assist industrial processing, aid medical diagnosis and therapy or the design of probes for other worlds. This talk will cover these phenomena.
