Deflectors (AODF) GH acousto-optic deflectors (AODF) provide precise spatial control of an optical beam, whether performing 1D or 2D scanning or executing beam deflection through a fixed angle. Our acousto-optic deflectors offer highly uniform diffraction efficiency across the full scan angle, with consistent power throughput for scanning ...
Acousto-optic modulators sAOMsd are widely used to accomplish the frequency control in laser cooling experi-ments. When the laser frequency is scanned with an AOM, the angle of the rst-order diffracted beam shifts as well, since the beam diffraction angle is a function of modulation frequency. Changes in beam diffraction angle may be desir-

The calculation parameter obtained for the acousto-optic figure of merit in LiNbO 3 crystal demonstrating good agreement and thus positive verification of the methodology developed. 5. Conclusions
From Eq. (3) it can be seen that the deflection angle depends on the wavelength of the incident light beam. The acousto-optic modulator can therefore be used to deflect beams of polychromatic light into co mponent colors or wavelengths, in a manner reminiscent of the dispersive prism. Modulation
The selection of the incident polar angle is very important in the entire design of the noncollinear acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF). The authors discussed how the factors, including tuning range of wavelength, the acoustic frequency, the acousto-optic figure of merit, the spectral bandwidth, the spread of filtered beam and the wavelength dependence, influence the selection of the optimum incident polar

The operation of acousto-optic devices has been illustrated in Figure 6 in connection with acousto-optic modulators. When an acousto-optic device is used as a modulator, one observes the diffracted beam at a fixed angle and varies the acoustic power to change the diffraction efficiency.
Most acousto-optic modulators take the configuration of small-angle Bragg interaction shown in figure 8-8. In this configuration, acousto-optic interaction takes place when the optical beam passes through the width of the acoustic beam.

In an anisotropic medium, two types of acousto-optic interaction are possible. If the optical mode does not change during the acousto-optic interaction, then (type of scattering) or (scattering) and the Bragg angle is determined by Eq. (5). This type of acousto-optic interaction is known as isotropic diffraction.
The transfer functions of acousto-optic (AO) interaction have been confined in the x-z plane till now, and this limitation restricts its application to 1-D (along transverse direction x) image processing such as the first-order spatial derivative operation.For higher order spatial derivative operations, two AOMs are cascaded in parallel, as shown in Fig. 11.
