Three-dimensional simulations of bidisperse bubble swarms rising in a liquid have been carried out. This article describes the microstructure of a swarm of mostly spherical bubbles representing 6% void fraction. The swarm consists of an equal number of large and small bubbles with volume ratio 2. While the behavior of the large bubbles is similar to that in a comparable monodisperse system, the behavior of the small bubbles is different.
