Event Details

Nanobubbles (NBs) find utility in biomedical applications such as ultrasound imaging and drug delivery. However, current state-of-the-art techniques to generate NBs are unable to generate monodisperse NBs, which limits the efficacy of NBs in applications. Here, Dr. Scott Tsai, iBEST Theme Lead, will describe a microfluidic approach to producing monodisperse nanobubbles. Namely, using a two-component gas mixture of water-soluble nitrogen and water-insoluble octafluoropropane as the gas phase. The work presented in this talk is an example of interdisciplinary collaboration of engineering, science, and medicine enabled by the Institute for Biomedical Engineering, Science and Technology (iBEST).
