Abstract

Single-bubble sonoluminescence (SBSL) is the art of trapping a micrometre-sized bubble within a standing acoustic field and driving it to emit light. Recently, there has been a burgeoning amount of research performed in this field. This paper aims to give the reader a succinct account of the current state of the theory and a description of a simple experimental set-up which may be used to achieve SBSL within a water-filled flask in any teaching laboratory.
