We introduce a Cavitation Intensifying Bag as a versatile tool for acoustic cavitation control. The cavitation activity is spatially controlled by the modification of the inner surface of the bag with patterned pits of microscopic dimensions. We report on different measurements such as the transmission of ultrasound, temperature increase inside the bag during sonication. Several applications of interest to other scientific activities are also demonstrated.
