7.2.2 Acoustic Broadcast Communication
Communication by acoustic waves is a highly useful channel for information transfer in nanomedicine. Previous Chapters have described the reception of acoustic energy in sensing (Sections 4.5, 4.8.2 and 4.9.1) and in the transfer of power (Sections 6.3.3, 6.4.1 and 18.104.22.168). Issues remaining to be addressed here include the generation of ultrasonic radiation by nanorobots (Section 22.214.171.124) and free-tissue acoustic channel bandwidths available in the human body (Section 126.96.36.199). Acoustic cables and transmission lines are treated in Section 188.8.131.52.
