Gas dissolution in antibubble dynamics

antibulleThe lifetime of the antibubble is driven by the slow drainage of the air from the bottom to the top of the antibubble. We discover that there exists another channel that conducts to the thinning and the dead of the antibubble: the dissolution of the air contained in the shell into the bulk liquid. This process is particularly activated when the liquid has been degassed. The model has then been enhanced and allows to describe the life of the antibubbles.
