Debye-Sears ultrasonic cell

A device used in ultrasonic imaging to measure the velocity and attenuation of compressional waves in a transparent liquid by virtue of acoustic waves set up in the liquid. The wavefronts serve as a plane light diffraction grating to diffract a light beam striking the liquid on either side of the zero-order spot.
