Paper Abstract

An acousto-optic system with a feedback which controls frequency of acoustic waves excited in an acousto-optic cell is investigated theoretically and experimentally. In the system an amplitude transparent situated in front of a photodetector defines a nonlinear dependence of light intensity registered by the photodetector on the ultrasound frequency. Conditions for appearance of multistable states, which differ by amplitude, frequency and diffracted beam direction, are found. Applications of the system for information channels switch in optical communication and for stabilization of laser beam direction are discussed as well.
