About Acoustics and Optics Group

The Acoustics and Optics Group (AOG) at OSCAR was founded by Professor Ronald Roy in 2018. The research of AOG is focused on the physics of sound generation, detection, and propagation, the interaction of sound and light for imaging and therapy, industrial ultrasonics, biomedical acoustics, and medical ultrasound artificial intelligence. A particular emphasis of our portfolio is the physical, chemical, and biological effects of acoustic cavitation. This includes sonochemistry, and both single and muiti-bubble sonoluminescence. Other important aspects of our ongoing work are with photo-acoustics and acousto-optics, and the application of ultrasound artificial intelligence in the point-of-care settings.

The AOG currently has three laboratories at OSCAR.

Research

Photo-acoustics and Acousto-optics Laboratory

Introduction

The Photo-acoustics and Acousto-optics Laboratory (PAL) is focusing on fundamental and applicable technologies that take advantages of the interaction of sound and light for both imaging and therapy. Ongoing projects include acousto-optic sensing, multi-functional nanoparticle for enhanced HIFU, multi-functional nanoparticle for drug delivery.
