Paper Abstract

In the ultrasonic light diffraction phenomena in an isotropic medium in the intermediate range (between Raman-Nath and Bragg) variations in polarization state of diffracted light have been predicted and experimentally observed. In the paper some experimental and numerical results for 0 order of light diffracted by ultrasonic wave of 50 MHz frequency are presented. A possibility of continuous control of the polarization state from linear to elliptical or circular against the Raman-Nath parameter has been confirmed in good agreement between theoretical and experimental values.
