Here we provide the theoretical background, calculate expected results, and experimentally show optically-induced Surface Acoustic Waves (SAW) of three distinct families of material deformation on silica microsphere whispering gallery resonators (WGR). These families of SAW are predicted and observed in both the forward- and backward-scattered directions of travel relative to the inducing optical field. Photonic cooling of materials at room temperature is discussed and preliminary observations are presented.
