Paper Abstract

Acousto-optic component technology and instrumentation continue to mature, and interest in practical applications has accelerated during the past year. Following our symposium in San Diego in August 1976 and publication of the Proceedings (SPI E Volume 90), it was decided to review recent progress and to report in a special issue of Optical Engineering the current state-of-the-art. Thus, this edition of the journal features a series of nine articles dealing with the theory and reduction-to-practice aspects of acoustic imaging and holography, bulk wave and surface wave devices, and other systems such as optical correlators and integrated optical radio frequency spectrum analyzers.
