The clocklike emission of picosecond pulses of light with a peak power over 30 mW has been observed to originate from a bubble trapped at the velocity node of a resonant sound field in water. The spectrum of this bright sonoluminescence is broadband and our measurements show that if a spectral peak exists, it lies at photon energies above 6 eV.
