Paper Abstract

InP acoustooptic Bragg cells which are IR-transparent in the 1-10 micron bandpass have a center frequency in the 200-600 MHz range, and a diffraction efficiency of 40-60 percent, on the basis of 1-W RF driving power. These devices are anticipated to be ideal in such applications as fiber-optic modulators, IR scanners, deflectors, and HF mode-lockers. In the course of fabrication, the photoelastic constant p44 has been defined; using other crystallographic configurations, such photoelastic constants as p11 and p12 are expected to emerge.
