Paper Abstract

Design and fabrication considerations for multielectrode modulation in a single acousto-optic device operating in the near acoustic field are presented. In particular, topics including acoustic and electrical cross-talk and electrode apodization to control Fresnel effects of the sound column on diffracted light are discussed; a concept of nesting electrodes to create overlapping laser beams is introduced.
