Observation of Nonclassical Photon Statistics in Single-Bubble Sonoluminescence

  title={Observation of Nonclassical Photon Statistics in Single-Bubble Sonoluminescence},
  author={Mohammadreza Rezaee and Yingwen Zhang and James L. Harden and Ebrahim Karimi},
A cavitation bubble inside a liquid, under a specific set of conditions, can get trapped in an antinode of the ultrasonically driven standing wave and periodically emits visible photons1,2. This conversion of sound to light phenomenon, known as sonoluminescence, can be seen with unaided eyes and occurs in multior single-bubble regimes. The sonoluminescence radiation spectrum analysis attributes a temperature of about 6,000 Kelvin to the bubble3–5 – close to the sun’s surface temperature. The…

Sonoluminescence: How Bubbles Turn Sound into Light
Sonoluminescence, the transduction of sound into light, is a phenom- enon that pushes fluid mechanics beyond its limit. An initial state with long wave- length and low Mach number, such as is
Plasma formation and temperature measurement during single-bubble cavitation
Observations of atomic (Ar) emission and extensive molecular (SO) and ionic (O2 +) progressions in SBSL spectra from concentrated aqueous H2SO4 solutions conclude that these emitting species must originate from collisions with high-energy electrons, ions or particles from a hot plasma core.
Sonoluminescence and bubble dynamics for a single, stable, cavitation bubble
High‐amplitude radial pulsations of a single gas bubble in several glycerine and water mixtures have been observed in an acoustic stationary wave system at acoustic pressure amplitudes on the order

The present theory clarifies a number of hitherto unsolved problems and suggests explanations for several more.
Another possibility of sonoluminescence due to the cherenkov radiation from the ZPF field in a water bubble
Sonoluminescence is the light produced from the collapse of bubbles in water under ultrasound. Schwinger proposed a physical mechanism for sonoluminescence in terms of photon production due to
An experimental investigation of acoustic cavitation in gaseous liquids
Abstract : High amplitude radial pulsations of a single bubble in several glycerine and water mixtures were observed in an acoustic stationary wave system at acoustic pressure amplitudes on the order
Molecular emission and temperature measurements from single-bubble sonoluminescence.
From an acoustically driven, moving bubble in phosphoric acid (H3PO4), very strong molecular emission from excited OH radicals is observed, which can be used as a spectroscopic thermometer by fitting the experimental SBSL spectra to the OH A’2Σ+ - X 2Π rovibronic transitions.
Shock formation within sonoluminescence bubbles
A strong case has been made by several authors that sharp, spherically symmetric shocks converging on the center of a spherical bubble driven by a strong acoustic field give rise to rapid compression
Bose–Einstein correlations and sonoluminescence
Sonoluminescence may be studied in detail by intensity correlations among the emitted photons. As an example, an experiment to measure the size of the light‐emitting region by the Hanbury Brown–Twiss
