Propagation of waves through piezo-electric α-quartz crystals

  • M. M. Paldas


Propagation of waves in piezo-electric α-quartz crystals has been studied. The slowness surfaces and the wave surfaces have been derived. The wave surface has been found to contain cuspidal points which give directions of energy concentration.
