In this chapter we discuss results of experimental studies on evolution of round and plane macro- and microjets at small Reynolds numbers in a transverse acoustic field. Hot-wire measurements and smoke visualization of the jets using stroboscopic laser illumination synchronized with acoustic forcing made it possible to obtain new data on their development.
