Paper Abstract

Mercurous halide crystals (Hg2Cl2, Hg2Br2, and Hg2l2) possess unique acousto-optic properties, including very low acoustic velocities and high figures of merit. These properties make mercurous halide Bragg cells desirable for various optical signal processing applications that are not possible with other acousto-optic materials. This paper discusses and compares the crystal properties and optimum operating conditions and identifies the implications for certain signal processing applications. A discussion of device design for both isotropic and anisotropic configurations is also presented.
