Cavitation bubbles induced by pulsed laser near a free surface have been investigated experimentally and numerically. The successive pressure waves from them and their vertical migrations and volume change were measured by using hydrophone and high-speed streak camera. The characteristics of the first and second rebound times due to the distance from the free surface enable us to guess the mechanisms of bubble collapse with microjet. Because our new scheme by CIP method is successfully applicable for such two-phase flow, the comparison between experimental and numerical results is also very useful to understand the fundamental factor of the complicated phenomena of cavitation bubbles.
