Congrats to Jordan Lum and Jake Dove for their paper entitled “Single microbubble measurements of lipid monolayer viscoelastic properties for small amplitude oscillations.” This paper reports on theory and experiment relating lipid intermolecular forces to microbubble resonance and damping.
Congratulations to Dr. Paul Mountford on his comprehensive review On the Thermodynamics and Kinetics of Superheated Fluorocarbon Phase Change Agents. We provide an argument for the energy barrier to homogeneous nucleation as an explanation for the metastability of superheated PFC droplets used in ultrasonics.
My family and I are settling into life in Firenze. Now it’s back to work! Here’s a view from my office.
