Paper Abstract

A survey is given of research in theoretical acousto-optics carned out at the universities of Gent (since 1943) and Kortrijk (since 1972). Methods and results are discussed that are used in solving light diffraction problems caused by single (progressive and standing), superposed, parallel, antiparallel, and crossing ultrasonic beams. The intensity of the diffracted light has been calculated for both the near field and the far field of the ultrasonic beams.
