A comparison between multibubble sonoluminescence intensity and the temperature within cavitation bubbles.

Cavitation bubble temperatures have been measured using a methyl radical recombination method and compared with the changes in the sonoluminescence intensity in aqueous ethanol solutions over a range of concentrations. Whereas the sonoluminescence intensity was decreased by more than 90% at low ethanol concentrations (<0.1 M), the measured bubble… CONTINUE READING
