Acoustic frequency combs leverage unique properties of the optical frequency comb technology in high-precision measurements and innovative sensing in optically inaccessible environments such as under water, under ground, or inside living organisms. Because acoustic combs with wide spectra would be required for many of these applications but techniques of their generation have not yet been developed, here we propose an approach to the creation of spectrally wide acoustic combs using oscillations…

Neural Echo State Network using oscillations of gas bubbles in water: Computational validation by Mackey-Glass time series forecasting
A bubble-based RC system that combines the nonlinearity of an acoustic response of a cluster of oscillating gas bubbles in water with a standard echo state network algorithm that is well suited to forecast chaotic time series is suggested.


Acoustic frequency combs using gas bubble cluster oscillations in liquids: a proof of concept
The proof-of-principle experiments demonstrate that nonlinear oscillations of a gas bubble cluster in water insonated by a low-pressure single-frequency ultrasound wave produce signals with spectra consisting of equally spaced peaks originating from the interaction of the driving ultrasound wave with the response of the bubble cluster at its natural frequency.

Phononic Frequency Comb via Intrinsic Three-Wave Mixing.
It is shown that the phononic frequency comb is generated through the intrinsic coupling of a driven phonon mode with an autoparametrically excited subharmonic mode, and the interplay between the nonlinear resonances and the well-known Duffing phenomenon is observed.

Frequency spectrum of the noise emitted by two interacting cavitation bubbles in strong acoustic fields.
The results show that, aside from the external driving pressure waves, the interaction between the bubbles imposes an extra nonlinear effect on the oscillations of the bubbles and that the dynamics of the smaller bubble could be suppressed gradually with the enhancement of this mutual interaction by decreasing the distance between thebubbles.
