What future applications could sonoluminescence lead to?

Scientists are still not sure what causes sonoluminescence, but in the future, what could applications of sonoluminescence create, unlock or discover?

First thing that comes to mind is coupling it to optogenetics!

A limiting step for optogenetics is getting the excitation light deep into the tissue. Maybe with sonoluminescence, excitation light could be produced deep within the tissue by introducing sound vibrations from multiple angles such that they resonate at a specific location deep within the tissue.
