Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Acoustics
  • Optics
  • Electrical engineering

Timothy G. Leighton mostly deals with Bubble, Acoustics, Cavitation, Sonoluminescence and Mechanics. His Bubble oscillation study in the realm of Bubble connects with subjects such as Population. His work on Ultrasonic sensor, Transducer and Sound pressure as part of general Acoustics research is frequently linked to Field, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science.

His Cavitation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Shock wave, Computational fluid dynamics and Shock. Timothy G. Leighton combines subjects such as Hydrophone and Optics with his study of Sonoluminescence. Timothy G. Leighton usually deals with Mechanics and limits it to topics linked to Speed of sound and Attenuation, Rotational symmetry and Luminescence.

His most cited work include:

  • The Acoustic Bubble (2287 citations)
  • What is ultrasound (226 citations)
  • Bubble population phenomena in acoustic cavitation (189 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Timothy G. Leighton spends much of his time researching Acoustics, Bubble, Mechanics, Cavitation and Sonar. His Acoustics research includes themes of Attenuation and Underwater. His Attenuation research integrates issues from Speed of sound, Scattering and Mineralogy.

His Bubble research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Surf zone, Oscillation and Classical mechanics. Timothy G. Leighton is interested in Sonoluminescence, which is a branch of Cavitation. The Sonar study combines topics in areas such as Human echolocation, Radar, Clutter and Marine engineering.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Acoustics (43.78%)
  • Bubble (32.30%)
  • Mechanics (16.03%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Acoustics (43.78%)
  • Bubble (32.30%)
  • Sound (7.18%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His main research concerns Acoustics, Bubble, Sound, Noise and Ultrasound. His work on Speed of sound as part of general Acoustics research is often related to Range, thus linking different fields of science. To a larger extent, Timothy G. Leighton studies Mechanics with the aim of understanding Bubble.

Timothy G. Leighton interconnects Attenuation and Nozzle in the investigation of issues within Mechanics. His work deals with themes such as Shoaling and schooling, Guideline compliance and Soundscape, which intersect with Noise. His study in Ultrasound is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Sound, Hearing range, Audiology, Bioacoustics and Ultrasonic sensor.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Anthropogenic sources of underwater sound can modify how sediment-dwelling invertebrates mediate ecosystem properties. (41 citations)
  • Are some people suffering as a result of increasing mass exposure of the public to ultrasound in air (26 citations)
  • Modelling acoustic scattering, sound speed, and attenuation in gassy soft marine sediments. (20 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Acoustics
  • Optics
  • Electrical engineering

His primary areas of investigation include Bubble, Acoustics, Underwater, Submarine pipeline and Sound. His research on Bubble concerns the broader Mechanics. His Mechanics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Radius and Shock.

His study in Acoustics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Attenuation and Surface wave. Timothy G. Leighton interconnects Ambient noise level, Noise and Flume in the investigation of issues within Underwater. His research in Sound intersects with topics in Noise pollution and Aeronautics.
