Recent theoretical and numerical investigations predict that localized nonlinear effects in the overlapping region of an incoming and reflected internal wave beam can radiate higher-harmonic beams. We present the first set of experimental visualizations, obtained using the digital Schlieren method, that confirm the existence of radiated higher-harmonic beams. For arrangements in which the angle of propagation of the second harmonic exceeds the slope angle, radiated beams are visualized. When… CONTINUE READING
