Abstract

A streak camera with high spatial and temporal resolution was used for imaging the dynamics of the violent collapse in single-bubble sonoluminescence. The high pressure in the last phase of the bubble collapse leads to the emission of a shock wave, which is launched with a shock velocity of almost 4000 m/s. The shock amplitude decays much faster than… (More)
