New Theranostics Paper

Oct. 23, 2016

Congrats to Kang-Ho Song on his new paper in Theranostics, “ Microbubble gas volume: A unifying dose parameter in blood-brain barrier opening by focused ultrasound “. Here, we show with microbubbles of different size that the extent of BBB opening increases linearly with the total volume dose of microbubbles. We...

Aug. 30, 2016

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.

4 graphs about the metastability of superheated PFC droplets

New Paper: Adv Colloid & Interface Sci

Aug. 21, 2016

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.
