Abstract : The document discusses the results of the experimental and theoretical investigations of surface acoustic waves propagating on piezoelectric substrates. It includes the parametric interactions, harmonic generation, parametric mixing of surface acoustic waves, interactions between light and surface acoustic waves, and the excitation of acoustic surface waves by a grating coupled Gunn oscillator. The accomplished results are reported in four papers entitled (1) Harmonic generation of Rayleigh waves in LiNbO3 substrates with a thin film, (2) Nonlinear interaction of surface waves with pseudo-surface waves, (3) The light diffraction efficiency of acoustic surface waves, (4) Excitation of acoustic surface waves with a grating coupled Gunn oscillator.
