Abstract

A geometric calculation method is developed to study the pulsed photoacoustic wave forming of an arbitrarily shaped droplet. It is found that for an ellipsoid droplet, either a prolate ellipsoid or an oblate ellipsoid, strict analytical formulas for describing the wave profile developed along the rotation axis can be derived. The results show intriguing differences compared to those of a sphere droplet in terms of the multiple geometric parameters being in effect, the pulse wave profile variant, and the existing of unlimited points of infinite tensile pressure.
