Seminar: Biomedical ultrasonic actuation at MEDUSA laboratory

Wednesday 18 October 2017

Author: Heikki J. Nieminen.
Summary: Non-linear ultrasonics enables actuation of matter from a distance in non-contacting manner. At will this can be achieved with negligible thermal effects. Examples of ultrasonic actuation methods include drug transport, ultrasonic manipulation of nano-fiber drug-delivery systems and acoustic levitation of small animals. The talk will give an insight to such ultrasonic biomedical actuation methods investigated at Medical Ultrasonics Laboratory (MEDUSA), Aalto University, Finland.
