    • Abstract


      An unsolved challenge of sonoluminescence phenomenon is the mechanism of light emission at the moment of collapse. In this article, by considering single-bubble sonoluminescence and based on the hydrochemical model and thermal bremsstrahlung approach, for the first time two different origins of light havenumerically been studied to describe the Ar bubble radiation in water at the moment of collapse: (a) radiation from the Ar gas inside the bubble and (b) radiation from the thin layer of the surrounding fluid. The results indicatethat, contrary to the previous studies, the radiation from the water shell is dominant, and it is about one order of magnitude stronger than the radiation from the gas inside the bubble. This result can decrease the differencebetween the theoretical results and the previous experimental data. In addition, based on the role of acoustic pressure amplitude on the characteristics of single-bubble sonoluminescence, various parameters such as degree of ionization, gas pressure, temperature and power were calculated. The results are in excellent agreement with the reported experimental measurements.
