Paper Abstract

Characterizing the Bragg normal light scattering by the traveling acoustic waves in isotropic medium in with essential optical dispersion is performed for the first time. It is shown that the scattering process under consideration includes the main properties peculiar to the anomalous light scattering in optically uniaxial anisotropic media. In particular, an optimized non-collinear light scattering and collinear interaction become to be unexpectedly possible in just isotropic media. These opportunities can be exploited in acousto-optical devices to improve their performance data.
