Fluorescent microbubbles have been fabricated with the capacity to have their emission modulated by ultrasound. These contrast agent particles could potentially be used in the future to extract fluorescence modulation from a strong light background to increase imaging depth and resolution in scattering media. Fluorescence intensity modulation was demonstrated at the ultrasound driving frequency.
