Abstract

The investigation of bubble events generated and driven in an acoustic environment is reported. An electrochemical approach is combined with a number of other chemical and physical observations of the systems studied. In particular laser scattering through the bubble cloud, high-speed imaging and luminescent measurements of multibubble sonoluminescence (MBSL) within the environment below an operating ultrasonic transducer (specifically a piston like emitter operating at ~ 23 kHz) is discussed in detail. The investigation of this complex environment highlights the contribution to the system from cluster events, shockwaves, transient bubble clouds and the electrochemical sensors employed in their investigation. Implications for the chemical and physical properties of the unusual environments explored will be highlighted with the need for a combined approach to these systems emphasised. In addition, the inertial zone, created by the sound source employed, is used to study erosion/corrosion processes at a stainless steel microelectrode.
