About This Project
Alpheus heterochaelis, better known as the Pistol Shrimp, possesses an over-sized claw that creates a cavitation bubble upon rapid closure underwater. The implosion of this bubble results in a shockwave and a flash of light, the former of which the shrimp uses to stun its prey. The goal of this experiment is to use high-speed imaging to study the implosion, and to apply the findings to the creation of novel water heating and purification technologies.
