PhD Studentship on Treating Waste Water using Acoustic Cavitation - CPE

University of Surrey - Department of Chemical and Process Engineering

Ultrasound is known to generate acoustic cavitation, which is the creation, expansion and implosion of bubbles when a certain acoustic pressure threshold is exceeded. Upon collapse of these cavitation bubbles the bubble core can reach extreme temperatures (> 5000 k) and pressures (> 1000 atm). This makes ultrasound a unique process intensification method that has benefits in processes such as cleaning, emulsification, nanomaterial synthesis, degradation of pollutants and crystallisation.
