|Outline of Final Research Achievements
The dynamics of solid particles that were dispersed in water under irradiation of ultrasound was investigated experimentally, as well as the dynamics of acoustic cavitation oriented bubbles (ACOBs). Furthermore, the interaction between the solid particles and ACOBs was investigated. On the basis of the above fundamental results, a novel capture/separation technology that precisely separates particles dispersed in water by the particle's diameter and density was developed.
We applied these to how to selectively decontaminate cesium from polluted water and developed new and basic technology of integrating our ultrasound technology and a Prussian blue technique. Our results were published in highly ranked international journals.
