Thomas Combriat: The song of bubbles
Abstract: Because of their huge compressibility difference with their surrounding media, air bubbles in water have a special relationship with acoustic waves: they are sub-wavelength resonators. In this presentation, I will show that this characteristic has great implications for both the surrounding fluid, because of the steady streaming effect, but also for the acoustic waves.
