Abstract Title: Real Time Wave Study
Abstract: Many of the wave experiments we do in physics are not amenable to real time study. In this poster we show how a number of real time experiments can be done, and how they correlate to the continuous wave equivalents.

The three considered here are:

1. Reflections and the etalon.
2. Refraction
3. Diffraction

We will first visualize these phenomena in the time domain with ultrasonic transducers; then do a Fourier transform and compare to CW measurements.
