Using a nanosecond CO2 laser for explosive surface boiling of bulk water, oscillatory acoustic transients from steam bubbles were recorded using a contact photoacoustic technique. Multiple well-resolved, high-amplitude multimegahertz spectral features reflecting parametric interactions between oscillations of cavitating steam bubbles were revealed in the fast Fourier transformation spectra of these transients. A potential parametric generation mechanism for these oscillation modes of steam bubbles is discussed.
