A ripple pattern created on a liquid surface can be used as a diffraction grating to diffract an ultrasound beam. The diffraction grating is formed when two ultrasound beam transducers driven from the same source are directed at the liquid surface. A third beam driven by another source at a higher frequency can then be diffracted by the ripple pattern.
