Ultrasonic Particle Separation

Georgia Lynott (University of Manchester)

ATB Frank Adams 1,

Tractor beams and levitating fish? The future is now! This talk provides a mathematical introduction to the wonderful world of ultrasonic manipulation. Streaming effects and acoustic radiation pressure will be dicussed, and we examine in detail the steady, second-order acoustic force on a rigid sphere, recovering the results of King via a more modern approach. Extensions to the viscous case and other examples briefly discussed.
