Discovery of Novel Acoustic waves
We have unravelled new types of acoustics waves and novel methods of exciting old ones, in a journey to excite fluids more effectively to deliver simple point of care diagnostics platforms and novel drug delivery mechanisms via inhalation therapy.

Microparicle and Cell manipulation
Using unique wave patterns, we have discovered new ways of vibrating, moving and concentrating microparticles and cells within a microlitre droplet and microchannels.

SAW manipulates the light properties of 2D materials
We have advanced recently in the hybrid field of Surface Acoustic Wave and 2D materials, our latest set of results indicate that sound waves can tune the photoluminescent properties of quasi and mono layered 2D materials.
