What is it about?
Surface acoustic wave propagation in solids leads to a sinusoidal modulation of a crystal lattice, which acts as a diffraction grating for X-ray radiation.

Why is it important?
It is important beacause it is usefull method to measure the acoustic wave amplitude, acoustic wave penetration depth and attenuation.
