Abstract
An experimental apparatus has been constructed that allows one to study heterogenous bubble formation by decompression of a liquid-gas solution exposed to a solid surface that contains a manufactured conical pit. A procedure has been developed that allows one to produce differently sized conical pits in the nucleation surface. The apparatus has been tested in a preliminary fashion and the results indicate that the presently available theories of heterogenous bubble nucleation will have to be modified before they can be used to predict the nucleation conditions.
