Modeling photoacoustic cavitation nucleation and bubble dynamics with modified classical nucleation theory.

Photoacoustic cavitation (PAC) is the formation of bubbles in liquids using a focused laser and a pre-established ultrasound synchronously. The decreased threshold of each modality and the precise location of cavitation determined by the focused laser are both significant in the targeted theranostics. In this study, PAC nucleation was described using the… CONTINUE READING
