The visualization of physical phenomena is one of the challenges that researchers are trying to overcome by designing and implementing different sensors that provide information close to realitythrough changes in one of the parameters they measure. Historically, the visualization of variations in physical phenomena has allowed for a better understanding of the problem being studied and has changed our perception of the world and ourselves forever. Over the last 300 years, in particular, many methods have been developed to visualize sound through a visual representation. In the field of acoustics, scientists have attempted to develop a visual representation of sound waves using transducers detecting two fundamental components of sound: sound pressure and particle velocity. In other words, the measurement of kinetic energy and potential, whose quantities provide information on the physical phenomenon of acoustic propagation. In this summary, we briefly present the work of the thesis entitled "2D and 3D Visualizations of Acoustic Waves by Optical Feedback Interferometry" in which a new visualization tool for acoustic phenomena was developed. This system is based on an optical sensor said reinjection in a laser diode and allows to reconstruct in 2D and 3D the image of a propagating acoustic wave. The manuscript is divided into 3 chapters: • a first chapter presents the known methods for the visualization of the acoustic phenomena and presents the context of the research carried out, • a second chapter, allows to detail the principle of measurement and its application to the realization of a two-dimensional image of the acoustic wave • finally, in the last chapter, we demonstrate how a tomographic method can be used to create a three-dimensional image.
