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: laser ultrasonics/ photoacoustic imaging / ultrasound modulated optical tomography / modelling of light sound interaction / elastography / phononics / acoustic microscopy / non-destructive testing / medical imaging / generation / detection / novel contrast agents e.g. nanoparticles, microbubbles / reconstruction algorithms / thin films / structure materials / transducers and sensors.
Contributions for oral and poster presentations are invited. Abstracts should be 200 words in length (figures and references are permitted) and submitted online by 15 July 2022.
