Author affiliations

Abstract

In this paper, Part 7 of the thematic tutorial series “Acoustofluidicsexploiting ultrasonic standing waves, forces and acoustic streaming in microfluidic systems for cell and particle manipulation ”, we present the theory of the acoustic radiation force; a second-order, time-averaged effect responsible for the acoustophoretic motion of suspended, micrometre-sized particles in an ultrasound field.
