The experimental verifications of a Hertz vector model of light scattering by surface acoustic waves on Y‐Z lithium niobate which was proposed by Stegeman are presented. The extension of the theory to a more general case in which the polarization state of the incident light is arbitrary is described and verified experimentally.
