Even under medium amplitude acoustic driving, nonlinear effects appear around vibrating bubbles, generating strong steady flows called acoustic streaming. We propose to use these flows in order to achieve propulsion of small scale, and to generate a new class of micro-swimmers. Their application is to behave as carriers, such as drug carriers, activated at a distance, or to be active tracers that enhance mixing.

End-stage lung diseases may result in death either by oxygenation and carbon dioxide exchange insufficiency or by right heart failure. Despite recent dramatic improvements in the medical management of these diseases, lung transplantation remains ultimately the only therapeutic option. However, shortage of donor organs and long waiting times on list make this treatment only available for few patients.
