In Raman-Nath diffraction by water, the intensities of even order light beams are selectively enhanced by suspension of microparticles. The diffracted beams remain for several seconds even after the ultrasonic oscillation stops. These phenomena are elucidated by assuming the laminar arrangement of micropaticles due to the ultrasonic wave.
