The optical Philpot-Svensson method, which was developed some time ago for research into diffusion processes, is used for the first time to image a standing ultrasonic wave. The characteristic of representation is, that this method yields directly in rectangular coordinates the graph of the gradient of the index of refraction of the standing wave. From this graph the variations in density, the sound pressure and other characteristics of the sound-field can subsequently be inferred. Of particular interest are standing ultrasonic waves in the diffusion path of a concentration gradient, because of the freezing-in phenomenon of the wave, which was observed by means of the schlieren arrangement and described in [1]. Details of this freezing-in phenomenon are shown and described by means of the new method.
