Sonoluminescence is the emission of light in materials that are rhythmically pulsed. Most sonoluminescence scenarios involve water in a vessel, which is connected to loudspeakers that induce their vibrations directly into the vessel, and the water within it. Once the system is brought to resonance (i.e. operating at the eigen frequencies of the system), a bubble of air is introduced into the middle of the vessel. This cavity must now be accounted for, and the system retuned to the eigen resonance of the system. When this resonance is reached the system begins to emit light in regular pulses, occurring in phase with the compression of the cavity. This can be compared to the principle that is used in Masers and Lasers.

Soundwaves are run through a bubble in water which causes the bubble to violently collapse. As the gas molecules collide at high speeds, heat and light energy is given off.
