Acoustic Levitation: From Physics to Applications
Foyalty 390

Acoustic Levitation: From Physics to Applications (Hardback)

£129.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

This book systematically introduces readers to the fundamental physics and a broad range of applications of acoustic levitation, one of the most promising techniques for the container-free handling of small solid particles and liquid droplets. As it does away with the need for solid walls and can easily be incorporated into analysis instruments, acoustic levitation has attracted considerable research interest in many fields, from fluid physics to material science.







The book offers a comprehensive overview of acoustic levitation, including the history of acoustic radiation force; the design and development of acoustic levitators; the technology's applications, ranging from drop dynamics studies to bio/chemical analysis; and the insightful perspectives that the technique provides. It also discusses the latest advances in the field, from experiments to numerical simulations. As such, the book provides readers with a clearer understanding of acoustic levitation, while also stimulating new research areas for scientists and engineers in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine and other related fields.

Duyang Zang received his Ph.D. in Physics from Paris-Sud University in 2010. He is now a professor in the Department of Applied Physics, Northwestern Polytechnical University, China. He is interested in a wide range of researches in soft matter and complex fluids including capillary phenomena, droplet/bubble dynamics, Interfacial rheology and dynamics, mechanics and phase behaviors of soft matter. He authorized more than 70 peer-reviewed journal papers including Nature Communication, Physics Reports, Physical Review Fluids, Soft Matter, and Langmuir. In 2014, he won the Shaanxi Provincial Science and Technology Award. Since 2017, he has been serving as an editor on the editorial board of European Physical Journal E. He has guest-edited two topical issues in journals: Soft Matter - Web theme on droplet dynamics and manipulation and Physics of Fluids - Drops and Flows in Acoustics Levitation.
