Abstract : The report is concerned with nonlinear interaction effects in solids, particularly those related to microwave acoustics and nonlinear optics. The studies themselves are basic in character, with emphasis on thorough treatments; the motivation for the topics chosen has in all cases been their importance and usefulness in various applications. Among the topics treated in detail are: the scattering of bounded laser beams by acoustically-modulated media, radiation from sources in acoustically-modulated media, parametric amplification and oscillation in bounded dielectric slabs, traveling-wave photoelastic parametric amplification, magnetoelastic parametric interactions, and methods of exciting Rayleign surface acoustic waves on piezoelectric crystals.
