A spectacular example is provided by sonoluminescence which is the phenomenon where by sound is channelled into light. In this effect a diffuse uniformly applied sound wave propagating through water can be observed to spontaneously focus its energy by over a factor of one trillion to generate a very short flash of ultraviolet light. A similar effect can be observed in the flow of water through a converging pipe. At flows which achieve velocity variations of about a meter/second bubbles form in the constriction and then emit picosecond bursts of ultraviolet light as they collapse downstream [flow cavitation].

some sort of potential for low cost sustainable power generation...the key was in sound/frequencies/vibration all along.
Reproduce it for what? There are much more efficient UV generators out there.

If this guy or someone else creates a public domain process to predictably reproduce this, instead of squandering it, we could see fairly significant advances in this technology within years and between several different organizations.

This reminds me a little of the guy who worked at a radio station. his wife got cancer and he was trying to destroy the cancer cells with radio waves. At one point in his experiments, he was able to ignite an area that was being hit with radio waves... A bright blue flame appeared...
Amazing, something so simple as a radio wave... Hope we can harness it somehow...
