Aims & Scope

Ultrasonics is the only internationally established journal which covers the entire field of ultrasound research and technology and all its many applications. Ultrasonics contains a variety of sections to keep readers fully informed and up-to-date on the whole spectrum of research and development throughout the world. Ultrasonics publishes papers of exceptional quality and of relevance to both academia and industry. Manuscripts in which ultrasonics is a central issue and not simply an incidental tool or minor issue, are welcomed.

As well as top quality original research papers and review articles by world renowned experts, Ultrasonics also regularly features short communications, a calendar of forthcoming events and special issues dedicated to topical subjects.

The journal covers:

  • Physics of ultrasound - Acousto-optics; Ultrasonic visualization; Ultrasonic imaging; Acousto-electric devices; SAW; Acoustic microscopy; Acoustic emission; Ultrasonic wave propagation; Application of lasers to ultrasonics; Physical acoustics (solids; liquids and gases); Material interactions, characterization and scatttering; Modelling of wave propagation and scattering; Air-coupled ultrasonics; Phononic crystals and acoustic metamaterials; Resonant ultrasound spectroscopy; Terahertz acoustics.
  • Non-linear ultrasound - Finite-amplitude ultrasonic waves; Parameters of non-linearity; Parametric arrays; Ultrasound cavitation and bubble dynamics; Ultrasonically produced streaming and radiation pressure; Acoustic levitation and particle manipulation; Ultrasonic fatigue and ultrasonics applied to fracture.
  • Biomedical ultrasound - Ultrasonic characterization of biological media; Ultrasonic imaging; Ultrasonics of bone and soft tissue; Scattering and absorption in biological materials; Elastography; Instrumentation; Diagnostic, therapeutic and surgical ultrasound; HIFU; Safety of medical ultrasound; Ultrasonic contrast agents and ultrasonic-guided drug delivery; Ultrasonic surgical devices; sonoporation and sonodynamics.
  • Underwater acoustics - Reflection, refraction, diffraction, interference, scattering and reverberation; radiation from objects vibrating under water; Ultrasound microfluidics.
  • High power ultrasonics - Industrial processes utilizing high power ultrasonics such as welding, wire drawing, filtering, drilling, cutting, cleaning, emulsification, atomization; Microstructural effects; Heat generation; Non-linear elastic waves in solids; Accelerated materials characterization by ultrasonic fatigue testing.
  • Ultrasonic NDT Research - Defect location and characterization in metals, ceramics, and composites; Materials characterization; Fatigue damage: A-, B-, C- and P-scans; Continuous wave resonance; Guided wave modes; Instrumentation; Phased arrays; Process monitoring; Structural health monitoring; Ultrasonics of civil, aerospace and geological materials, and of structural components.
  • Ultrasonic transducers and systems - New transducer principles, materials and construction; Calibration; Amplifiers and attenuators; Ultrasonics in control applications; Robotics and automated ultrasonic systems; Oscillation behavior of ultrasonic-based systems.


All Ultrasonics Scientists and Engineers in industry and academia.
