Paper Abstract

We study the response of a spherical absorber immersed in aqueous media. We investigate temporal resonant absorption and present initial numerical calculations of the same topic. Initial results indicate that, because of the dynamical characteristic of the system, the response after a sequence of energy pulses depends nonlinearly on the time between pulses. Specifically, the response exhibits resonant type behavior around a critical time, the time it would take a sound wave to traverse the absorber.
