Temperature inhomogeneity during multibubble sonoluminescence

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


(Figure Presented) Bright bubbles! Ultrabright sonoluminescence is observed from concentrated phosphoric acid (see picture). Two independent molecular emission species (excited OH and PO) can be observed from multibubble sonoluminescence; both of them can be used as spectroscopic thermometers to probe the extreme conditions generated during bubble collapse.
