Dynamics of acoustically driven microbubbles in ultrasonic fields are known to be complex and uncontrollable phenomena indicative of a highly active nonlinear as well as chaotic behavior. In this paper, a method based on Slave-Master Feedback (SMF) to suppress unstable radial oscillations of contrast agents is presented. In the proposed control process, the encapsulated microbubbles as the slave system is coupled with a dynamical system as the master, so that the output of the coupled system is able to produce a stable oscillation. A great virtue of this control technique is its flexibility. In comparison with existing techniques, the present dynamical chaos control method does not need to know more than one variable. The numerical results show its strong impact on reducing the chaotic oscillations to regular ones.
