Abstract: Underwater spark-discharge methods have been widely utilized for experimental studies in many fields such as material processing, water treatment, and cavitation bubble dynamics. However, the precise control of bubble size using this method has been difficult. This poses challenges to better understand the complex interactions of non-spherical cavitation bubble growth and collapse, which require fine and careful control of bubble size. A novel low-voltage (60.0 V) underwater spark-discharge method using a metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistor is presented here. We are able to repeatedly generate oscillating bubbles of consistent maximum radius, a. The dependency of the total circuit resistance to spark-generated bubble size in this method is discussed. © 2013 American Institute of Physics.
