Impact of bubble coalescence in the determination of bubble sizes using a pulsed US technique: Part 2 – Effect of the nature of saturating gas

Abstract

Knowledge on cavitation bubble size distribution, ambient radius of bubbles is of interest for many applications that include therapeutic and diagnostic medicine. It however becomes a hard quest when increasing the ultrasonic frequency, when direct observation of bubble dynamics is no longer possible. An indirect method based on the estimation of the bubble dissolution time under pulsed ultrasound (362 kHz) is used here under optimized conditions to derive ambient radii of cavitation bubbles in water saturated with He, Ar, Xe, O$_2$, N$_2$ and air: 3.0 µm for Ar, 1.2 µm for He, 3.1 µm for Xe, 2.8 µm for O$_2$, around 1 µm for N$_2$ and air. If the pulse on-time is increased, bubble coalescence occurs, the extent of which is rather limited for Ar but extremely high for He or N$_2$.
