Abstract

The problem of optical image deformations caused by the phenomenon of light beam diffraction in uniaxial crystals by ultrasonic waves is considered in the paper. A general analytical expression is derived describing a dependence of spatial deformations and transmission coefficients on incidence angles as well as on parameters of the crystal and the ultrasound. The most interesting wide-angle diffraction configurations are analyzed, and all types of spatial distortions and transfer functions are described.
