Wave Mixing

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Interactions between sound/elastic waves and other types of waves—physical (electromagnetic, electronic, etc.) or biological can lead to a wide range of very rich phenomena. Media supporting different types of waves and their sources can coherently convert energy between sound/elastic waves and other physical and biological waves. For example, unexpected biological morphogenesis responses of tissues to vibrations [1] have arisen by extending the science of sound to biological media, and may inspire revolutionary new therapeutic technologies that accelerate bone fracture or soft tissue lesion repair processes, or treatment of neurological disorders.
