Current Research

I am currently doing my second year of PhD on the topic of needle ultrasonics. The aim of the project is to fabricate a tunable frequency transducers at tip of all optical fibres for producing a wide range of range of frequencies from high to low frequencies. This ultrasonic probe can be deployed in needles. Such small transducers have many potential applications in medicine and industry, such as measuring tissue properties during needle biopsies, ultrasonic guiding of needles during injections or investigating the coating properties through very small (sub mm) access very narrow spaces.
