Corentin C. Cornu is a PhD student coming from Université du Maine (Le Mans, France), holder of research-oriented Master degree in Physical acoustics (2013-2014). The goal of his research at the LabTAU is to control the motion dynamic of a stable cavitation bubble cloud during time. The control of the random behavior of the cavitation phenomenon allows (1) to clearly discriminate the bio-effects induced between stable and inertial cavitation and (2) to ensure a constant stable cavitation activity during time, which leads to promising results for applications like cells sonoporation and Brain-Blood Barrier opening. The thesis project consists in numerical and theoretical investigations of the bubble clouds dynamics and experimental in-vitro studies of the bio-effects induced by ultrasound on the cells.
