Impact of bubble coalescence in the determination of bubble sizes using a pulsed US technique: Part 1 - Argon bubbles in water

Abstract : A powerful experimental approach to measure the size distribution of bubbles active in sonoluminescence and/or sonochemistry is a technique based on pulsed ultrasound and sonoluminescence emission. While it is an accepted technique, it is still lacking an understanding of the effect of various experimental parameters, including the duration of the pulse on-time, the nature of the dissolved gas, the presence of a gas flow rate, etc. The present work, focusing on Ar-saturated water sonicated at 362 kHz, shows that increasing the pulse on-time leads to the measurement of coalesced bubbles. Reducing the on-time to a minimum and/or adding SDS to water allows to reducing coalescence so that natural active cavitation bubble sizes can be measured. A radius of 2.9-3.0 µm is obtained in Ar-saturated water at 362 kHz. The effects of acoustic power and possible formation of a standing-wave on coalescence and measured bubble sizes are discussed.
