Paper Abstract

Experiments investigating thermocavitation in binary solutions induced by continuous laser radiation are described. The cavitation consists in periodic rise and collapse of vapor-gas bubbles, accompanied by hydraulic shocks. The necessary condition for obtaining periodic pressure pulses by thermocavitation are investigated and the influence of the volatile component in binary solutions on the magnitude of acoustic signal is studied. Regime of cw and pulse-laser excitation of cavitation is compared.
