Optics + Ultrasound V
Combining optics and ultrasound leads to many powerful techniques for probing and manipulating matter. Applications are wide ranging and include medical imaging, non destructive testing and fundamental science ranging from the macroscale down to the nanoscale. Following highly successful meetings sponsored by the Institute of Physics, we are pleased to announce Optics+Ultrasound V. This will cover all aspects of combining light and sound. Suggested topics include: non destructive testing / medical imaging / generation / detection / photoacoustic imaging / ultrasound modulated optical tomography / novel contrast agents e.g. nanoparticles, microbubbles / reconstruction algorithms / modelling of light sound interaction / elastography / thin films / structure materials / transducers and sensors / phononics / acoustic microscopy.
