Sonoluminecence (light from sound) is investigated and a new equation (#3) successfully predicts the outcome of variables in the phenomenon and disagrees with earlier results. Kudos. pete SEE:http://arxiv.org/abs/1111.5229

From the paper.

Note that this formula predicts that larger bubbles will have more energetic discharges. If one were to trap 100m bubbles in larger, lower frequency resonators, condensate energy could exceed 7 GeV. This might be enough energy to provoke a fusion reaction in the bubble if the right isotopes are present, in addition to a much more visibly powerful discharge

This should help the bubble fusion guys.
