National Science Foundation awards grant to Study Dynamic Response of Constrained Bubbles to Acoustic Excitation

Sheryl Gracewski (PI) and Diane Dalecki (co-PI) were awarded an NSF grant from the CMMI division titled Dynamic Response of Constrained Bubbles to Acoustic Excitation. This project will theoretically and experimentally characterize the linear and nonlinear dynamics of acoustically excited bubbles that are constrained within tubes and channels. The results of this work will be directly relevant to the use of ultrasound microbubble contrast agents in diagnostic imaging and new ultrasound-based therapies.
