A new method for a water treatment utilizing radicals produced by a discharge inside bubbles in water is proposed. Radicals with short lifetime (atomic oxygen and OH radical) are used effectively for the water purification because those are generated by discharge inside bubbles in water. OH radical production was confirmed by a light emission of the discharge using the spectroscopic technique. Dissolved ozone concentration of about 0.3 mg/l was obtained when oxygen was used as a bubbling gas. Decolorization process of indigo solution by a discharge inside bubbles in water was investigated.
