Paper Abstract

The design and performance characteristics of a compact, wide-band, space-integrating, acousto-optic signal processing system that provides the unipolar convolution of high-speed digital pulse trains is de-scribed. The system utilizes a semiconductor diode laser, two tellurium dioxide (Te02) Bragg cells with bandwidths of 100 MHz and aperture times of 6 pis, imaging and collection optics, and an avalanche photodiode to perform the convolution operation in real time.
