The phases of the sound pressure cycle at which the main and secondary flashes of sonoluminescence are emitted from water cavitated acoustically at 14 and 23 kHz have been determined. These results imply that the bubble nuclei grow to between 0.5 and 1.0 of their resonant size before undergoing the transient type cavitation, which is responsible for the emission of light: a simple model of cavitation dynamics is used to prove this. The secondary flash is attributed to a bubble rebound. Descriptions are also given of other aspects of cavitation activity including the occurrence and timing of shock waves emitted from the imploding bubbles. Suggestions for further work are outlined.
