Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Several experiments are presented to study the physical and geometrical optics of narrow diffraction-limited monochromatic phonon beams in the frequency range 1-6 GHz. The experiments include diffraction by fixed and sideward moving gratings, and the realization of a phonon lens.
