The possibility to control acoustic waves polarization by electric field inducing artificial spiral anisotropy was shown by Bely and Sevruk [1]. Later on, the same authors [2] showed a possibility of rotating acoustic anisotropy forming in dielectric crystals under external electric field influence. Detailed study of acousto-electron interaction in semiconductors was given in papers [3], [4] at the Bianisotropics’98 and Chira’94 meetings. The case of resonance interaction when acoustic wave frequency ω coincides with the rotating electric field frequency Ω was considered in article [5] and in paper [6]. In this work, various regimes of non-resonance interaction of acoustic waves with rotating electric field are considered.
