Paper Abstract

For optically resonant systems, the intermodulation amplitudes of the 2nd and 3rd orders in approximation of small diffraction efficiency for the two main AO interaction regimes: 'thin' and 'thick' gratings are for the first time calculated. It is shown, that the photoelastic nonlinearity causes in general case the complexity of intermodulations. However, under certain conditions, the effect of compensated intermodulation can take place. It yields to the possibility of remarkable growth of the dynamic ragne value which is a great importance parameter for many AO devices.
