Paper Abstract

Semiconductor crystals exhibit very high figures of merit for acousto-optic applications at photon energies close to their band gaps. In semiconductor superlattices one can also exploit a Fabry-Perot effect whose resonances occur near the stop bands. These periodic structures allow light retrodiffraction by ultrasonic waves. It is shown that the use of semiconductor crystals and superlattices as interaction materials permits the conception of fast broadband acousto-optic deflectors and modulators.
