New experimental observations are presented which support the high speed jet mechanism of cavitation damage. A general discussion of the basic hydrodynamic theory involved is given and the importance of certain parameters on damage are pointed out. New techniques for studying the collapse of single cavities are described and the concept and development of a high speed photographic system using a ruby laser is outlined. Magnifications of up to fifty times at picture repetition rates as high as 1,600,000 per second and exposure times of 20 billionths of a second have been achieved.
