This letter presents the results of an experimental observation and investigation of the recently predicted anomalous absorption of bulk shear acoustic waves polarized normally to the plane of incidence by an ultrathin layer of viscous fluid between two elastic media. Strong increase of the absorptivity of the incident wave by the fluid layer has been observed at layer thicknesses that are much smaller than the wavelength and wave penetration depth into the fluid. A good agreement between the experimental results and the theoretical predictions has been achieved.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
