Considered is interaction of weak probe radiation, in the form of optical waves and pulses, with rapidly moving inhomogeneities induced in a nonlinear medium by strong laser pulses. Demonstrated are different regimes of interaction including reflection of probe radiation and its copropagation in the same direction as the incident radiation.
