Correlation in spatial intensity distribution between volumetric bubble oscillations and sonochemiluminescence in a multibubble system

Correlation in spatial intensity distribution between volumetric bubble oscillations and... The correlation in spatial intensity distribution between volumetric oscillation of multibubble and sonochemiluminescence in an ultrasonic standing-wave field is investigated through the measurements of scattered light from bubbles by changing the measuring position in the direction of sound propagation and sonochemiluminescence with luminol. When a thin light sheet, finer than half the wavelength of sound, is introduced into the cavitation bubbles at the anti-node of the sound pressure, the scattered light intensity oscillates temporally. The peak-to-peak light intensity corresponds to the number of the bubbles which contribute to the sonochemical reaction because the radius for oscillating bubbles at pressure antinode is restrictive in a certain range due to the shape instability and the action of Bjerknes force that expels from anti-node bubbles larger than the resonant size. The experimental results show that at the side near the water surface, the peak-to-peak light intensity is larger in comparison with the intensity near the sound source, and this tendency becomes apparent at higher input power. These light scattering results correspond with the spatial intensity distribution of the sonochemiluminescence with luminol. Therefore, it is interpreted that most of the cavitation bubbles contributing to the sonochemical reactions in the standing wave field exist near liquid surface. Present method of light scattering in reference with the image of the sonochemiluminescence is promising for evaluating spatial distribution of violently oscillating cavitation bubbles effective for sonochemical reactions.
