Nonlinear oscillations of gas bubbles submerged in water : implications for plasma breakdown

Abstract

Gas bubbles submerged in a dielectric liquid and driven by an electric field can undergo dramatic changes in both shape and volume. In certain cases, this deformation can enhance the distribution of the applied field inside the bubble as well as decrease the internal gas pressure. Both effects will tend to facilitate plasma formation in the gas volume. A… (More)
