Might anyone have any clue on how high frequency ultrasound have effect on killing viruses and bacteria on surfaces (GHz/MHz)? There have been a few articles online that say ultrasound has effect on viruses and bacteria with literally shaking the virus until inactivation.
How could ultrasound effect for instance COVID 19 or virus similiar DNA/RNA/retroviruses where destroying the outer layer or the membrane layer of the virus/bacteria etc with GHz/MHz? How is virus/bacteria protein layer strength and durability determined anyway? What units are used to determine virus/bacteria membrane layer strength?
Would it be possible to introduce for example two separate transducers, for the waves to intersect on different areas, would then allow tearing the virus apart or can changing the beam type rapidly(continuous beam, pulsed beam etc) with rotation be an effective way to twist the outer membrane of a virus well enough for it to be destroyed successfully in a short period of time?
