Title

Inertial Confinement and Centimetric Cavity Collapse

Abstract

In the frame of the research on the inertial confinement to obtain the nuclear fusion, we intend to study the collapse dynamics of large nearly-void spherical bubble inside a liquid, provoking the inertial confinement of the matter trapped inside the cavity.

This process is similar to sonoluminescence experiment or to inertial confinement fusion experiement. However, our original setup allows to work at larger length and time scales,

and then allow the direct observation of all thermodynamical and hydrodynamical phenomena.



Preliminar experiments indicates that temperature higher than 20000 K can be reached, and maybe much more.



The experimental work will be a base for developing physical models.
