Sonoluminescence is a phenomenon relatively recent in the scientific
community, for which there are still many unknowns remaining to be
discovered. Is important to keep investigating it, in order to reach a full
understanding of the effect.
The present document contains the description of the work carried out for the
preparation of a Sonoluminescence experiment in microgravity conditions. An
experimental design and procedure are proposed in order to investigate
multibubble sonoluminescence in a microgravity platform, specially directed to
a parabolic flight campaign.
In order to achieve these objectives this document has been divided in three
main chapters. In the first chapter a theoretical explanation of the phenomenon
is presented, including from an historical overview to a personal interpretation
of the different. Moreover, the main characteristics affecting sonoluminescence
and the state of the art can also be found in this chapter.
Chapter two describes in detail the experimental procedure, the equipment
needed to conduct it and to follow in order to reach the optimum setup for the
system. Finally, a simulation of the phenomenon is presented in chapter three.
Numerical results obtained are compared to current experimental results.
