We calculate the diffraction of a light beam by a liquid filled with a quasiperiodic ultrasonic wave, within a simple phase grating approximation. The results, qualitatively different from the periodic case, are obtained along two lines, a direct calculation and a straightforward application of the Cut and Projection method developed in the field of quasicrystals.
