The dynamic behaviour of cavitation bubble close to a flexible boundary is investigated experimentally. The cavitation bubble is produced as a consequence of an optical breakdown generated by the focus of 532 nm Nd-Yag laser beam. A gold mirror is used to focus the expanded laser beam into a spherically shaped plasma. A PVDF film sensor is used for the measurement of the interaction magnitude between the bubble and the flexible boundary. As the flexible boundary directly the PVFD film sensor is used. The sensor is flexibly mounted within a specially designed movable frame which enables to modify the elastic properties of the system. The bubble dynamics and the flexible wall movement are recorded by high-speed CCD camera and correlated with the acoustic signal obtained by the PVDF film. Different bubble collapse patters for different bubble wall distances and the corresponding acoustic signals are presented.
