In the present paper we have investigated the optical transition radiation in a plate excited by a longitudinal acoustic wave. The spectral-angular density of the radiated energy is calculated. The numerical examples are given for a plate of fused quartz. These results show that the acoustic waves allow to control the parameters of the radiation. In particular, new resonance peaks appear in the spectral distribution of the radiation intensity. The height of the peaks can be tuned by choosing the parameters of the acoustic wave.
