We analyzed the problem of finding a surfaces family through a null curve with Cartan frame. We constructed a differential equation system such that a given null curve is an isogeodesic curve on a surface. In addition, developablity along the common null geodesic of the members of surface family are discussed. The extension to ruled surfaces is also outlined. Finally, we demonstrated some interesting surfaces about subject. © 2009 Academic Journals.
