The continuous emission of picosecond pulses of light has been observed to originate from a bubble trapped at the pressure antinode of a resonant sound field in water and in water/glycerin mixtures. The spectra of this light in several solutions has been measured with a scanning monochrometer/photomultiplier detector system. The spectra are broadband and show strong emission in the UV region. A comparison of this measurement to two other independently produced spectra is made. The spectra are also modeled by a blackbody radiation distribution to determine an effective blackbody temperature and a size is deduced as if somoluminescence were characterized by blackbody radiation.

Techniques and benefits of shaping the pulses of binary sequences with application to spread spectrum radio communications. Mavranganis, Panayiotis G. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1979-03);This research is concerned with binary sequences. Such two-level voltage waveforms are used in some types of spread spectrum systems. Of interest in this work is the effect of shaping the normally rectangular pulses of ...
