Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We describe electro-mechanical auto-oscillator which, when placed in contact with irregular acoustic cavity, can exhibit stimulated emission of ultrasound. Analytic model is constructed describing the device, which we propose as classical analogue of random laser.
