Abstract

Engineered, photoacoustic transduction layers are often required in systems that cannot sustain repeated optical excitation owing to material degradation that can occur as a result of optical irradiation. To produce acoustic waves with sufficient amplitude in these systems, polymer matrix nanocomposites can be used for transduction and can serve as photoacoustic transmitters. These nanocomposites can be designed to produce large acoustic generation efficiency while minimizing collateral effects on surrounding materials - this can be important in biomedical applications where tissue damage must be avoided. This work focuses on the use of nanocomposites as photoacoustic transmitters and assesses the optical, thermal and acoustic behaviors of these materials to identify critical parameters that affect their performance under different irradiation conditions.
