New Publication: Experimental characterization of acoustic beaming from an elastic plate by coupled symmetric leaky Lamb modes

Congratulations to CDT alumnus Dr Tom Graham, whose paper ‘Experimental characterization of acoustic beaming from an elastic plate by coupled symmetric leaky Lamb modes’ has recently been published in Physical Review B. Tom graduated in 2019. Abstract Designer mode dispersions with properties such as negative or zero group velocities have applications in tailored wave propagation […]

New Publication: Coupled Scholte modes supported by soft elastic plates in water

Congratulations to third year PGR Beth Staples, whose paper ‘Coupled Scholte modes supported by soft elastic plates in water’ was recently published in Physical Review E. Abstract Localized acoustic surface waves supported by a “soft” elastic plate in water are explored. Unlike many materials, such as aluminum, for soft interfaces the Scholte wave, a localized […]
