Abstract:

This task is devoted to optical generation of sound at audible frequencies. The optical source of energy must be modulated to produce a time dependent heating and this time dependent heating is then converted to a pressure variation. We have been considering conversion from light to sound in a gas classical spectrophone and at a surface as observed by Alexander G. Bell .
