The cavitation inception process in trailing vortices has been studied for several years. One of the important findings from these studies is the strong sensitivity to nuclei size and number as well as significant viscous effects. In order to understand the nucleation and bubble growth process in more detail, a photographic study was conducted with the aim of developing high quality visualizations of the dynamical growth of bubbles.
