4. Summary(a) A theory of the phenomenon of the diffraction of light by sound-waves of high frequency in a medium, discovered by Debye and Sears and Lucas and Biquard, is developed.(b) The formula
$$\sin \theta = \pm {{n\lambda } \over {\lambda * }} n (an integer) \ge 0$$
which gives the directions of the diffracted beams from the direction of the incident beam and whereλ andλ* are the wave-lengths of the incident light and the sound wave in the medium, is established. It has been found that…
