Other ways of generating cavitation voids involve the local deposition of energy, such as an intense focused laser pulse (optic cavitation) or with an electrical discharge through a spark. Vapor gases evaporate into the cavity from the surrounding medium; thus, the cavity is not a perfect vacuum, but has a relatively low gas pressure. Such a low-pressure cavitation bubble in a liquid begins to collapse due to the higher pressure of the surrounding medium. As the bubble collapses, the pressure and temperature of the vapor within increases. The bubble eventually collapses to a minute fraction of its original size, at which point the gas within dissipates into the surrounding liquid via a rather violent mechanism, which releases a significant amount of energy in the form of an acoustic shock wave and as visible light. At the point of total collapse, the temperature of the vapor within the bubble may be several thousand kelvin, and the pressure several hundred atmospheres.

It doesn't seem too difficult to reproduce and maybe even harness either. It looks like if you had an extra $10k and enough research, you could do this yourself.
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.
I think this has the potential to be a technology that turns the tides of power against TPTB, giving the power back to the people.

I watched this video and the only thing I could think of was Genesis 1:3
Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.
It's interesting to note that God was moving over the waters when he said that.

god didnt create light or the sun. theres no such thing as god.

Good post OP and interesting info. I was curious what the effect might be in other liquids, like say heavy water, or in thick gasses. [dont have an example] And also what of molten materials like metals, salts etc. Sodium [metal] comes to mind for some reason. I'm sure some of these would be dangerous to say the least. Any idea anyone?
So Horizon decided to try to sort out the issue once and for all. And we commissioned an independent team of leading scientists to conduct the experiment. Working from the instructions set out in Taleyarkhan's paper, we assembled the same key scientific conditions to create nuclear fusion from sonoluminescence. To see if we could find fusion, we measured the neutrons and the flashes of light simultaneously with nanosecond accuracy, something that had never been done before.
The experiment was carried out by Seth Putterman, one of the world's leading practitioners of sonoluminescence. His data was analysed by a panel in the UK that included experts in sonoluminescence and neutron detection. They agreed that Putterman had achieved the vital scientific conditions set out in Taleyarkhan's paper and that his experiment was a good attempt at getting the same results.
But then it came down to the crucial question: did Putterman find fusion? The result was negative. Recording data nanosecond by nanosecond, Putterman did not find a single neutron close enough to a flash of light for it to be considered the result of nuclear fusion.
