Abstract

Ultrasound fields have broad applications in imaging, sensing, medical therapy, etc. In these applications, it is of great importance to generate desired ultrasound fields. The generation of arbitrary ultrasound fields is challenging using phased array transducers or a monolithic acoustic hologram. In this work, by taking advantage of the photoacoustic effect and spatial light modulating technique, we demonstrate that dynamic and high-resolution arbitrary acoustic fields in liquid can be realized. We clearly show ultrasonic vortex and arbitrary 2D/3D ultrasonic fields in our photoacoustic system. All the measured pressure fields agree well with the desired ones. We anticipate these rapidly tunable photoacoustic fields will find applications in dynamic acoustic tweezers and ultrasonic imaging.
