The geometry of anisotropic light diffraction in ultrasound waves excited by a multi-element converter in an optically uniaxial negative crystal of lithium niobate is analyzed. An expression for the refractive index of a diffracted wave was found on the basis of a study of the optical indicatrices of the refractive indices of ordinary and extraordinary light waves in the crystal. A method for calculating the angular frequency characteristics of anisotropic acousto-optic Bragg cells with multi-element converters is proposed.
