The paper discusses the mechanism of cross-produce component generation connected with the acoustic parameters of the medium and acoustic power density for the fundamental frequencies. The expressions for the spatial distribution of harmonic components for the fundamental and cross-produce frequencies are given. The paper presents some experimental results of spatial distributions for the fundamental and higher acoustic harmonics for several widely used acousto- optic crystals under different power density levels of fundamental harmonic. Basing on these experimental data, are analyzed the variations of the spectrum spread function for the space-integrating acousto-optic spectrum analyzer and spatial optical distribution of cross-product components.
