We are using bubbles to transform medicine, develop ultrasonic cleaning and learn more about whales and dolphins.
Our innovative research into bubble acoustics is developing exciting applications in several fields. Professor Tim Leighton and his team treat ‘noise’, such as the sound of bubbles, as a source of information about the natural world. Likewise, they treat ‘sound’ as a way to change the world by inducing chemical reactions, or changing human tissue. The applications of this technology include:
- understanding the oceans
- delivering drugs and medical procedures
- improving ultrasonic diagnostic tools
- making cleaning systems work more efficiently
